on but one cow

November 16, 2011

ladies and gentlemen, this is a song about an old man.
he had a cow.
he had but one cow, and the cow died.
he loved the cow better than his own child.
when the cow died, getting grieved by the cow was going no milk and butter.
at home.
so, here come this song.

if you mourn for dickie, i’ll tell you right now:
he was an old man and he had but one cow –
over hedges and ditches and fields he had plowed
he ran for his life just to get to his cow.

oh, wicked, wicked dickie done died.
