"We Was Mountainmen" Ron LaClair

I remember when we was Mountainmen
seems like it weren't long ago
we was bullhide tough an we played real rough
there weren't a man that we couldn't throw

When we draw'd down on a deer our eyes was clear
an that critter was soon on a pole
We Mountainmen...who'd a though back then
that we would ever grow old

We shoot smoothbores now can't see em rear sights
but the front blade is still fairly clear
We load them smoothies with a big round ball
an still manage to kill us some deer

We still rendezvous an we still count coup
but it aint like it use ta be
Our joints is worn an it's hard ta run
when ya got a titanium knee

Then there's them pipes, ya just never know
if they're in the shape they should be
So the Doc he says, "Son I think it's time
ya had a colonoscopy

Can't sleep no more on the cold hard ground
since we got that new plastic hip
use ta drink a whole jug round the fire at night
now it's just a few little sips

The day will come...not far down the road
when they'll wanna put us in a home
they'll say we're too old ta be out in the cold
to old ta hunt on our own

When they come ta take me to that old folks home
on some cold dark rainy night
They'll sure be surprised when this old coon say's

But if they win an I'm put in
to that fearsome, lonely place
to swaller pills cuz I got the chills
'mongst wrinkles on my face

Then remember me, y'all that's still free
and hold to the mountain creed
To never rest, but fight yer best
till the Ol'coon is finely freed

Great poem Ron.   cowyboy hatoff

I'm probably up for "that new plastic hip" within the next year. Maybe it will extend my hunting years.
