Old Bud, the Cowhand by Mary Bone


Old Bud, the Cowhand

Old Bud, the cowhand,
was the best cook all around.
His biscuits were well known
along the cattle trail.
Old Bud said part of his secret to
his mouthwatering biscuits
was to use almost rotten milk.
Ranch hands would travel miles from all around
to get a taste of his baked beans and smoked ribs.
When Old Bud got too old to travel,
he opened his own Trail Hand cafe at the
end of the dusty trail.
