He’s a man with a skill of his own, he makes cow whips in his
barn a little ways form his home
With each whip he makes there is a story to tell
Truth or not no one will tell
As he platts the whips then pulls them tight he often think of
days gone by
Days that were long, hard and rough
Where the men were strong and tough
He sells his whips to people of all kinds some are young some are
old some are for work and some are for show
But all are built the same this I know, they are made with pride
from zip to tip, all come with a personalized handle for a firm grip
I’m proud of this Man for he’s a Brother of mine, but most of all
he’s a True Friend I can call on anytime.
