Lyrics: 

Sourdough Sam

Well, I had a good pal named Sourdough Sam
He was a wrangler the same as I am
On the old Chisholm Trail from San Antone
Up to Abilene we would soon ride on

Ride on, ride on Sourdough Sam
True grit wrangler as I am
Your new wife will understand
Chisholm Trail needs a good man

Now, a stampede sends wild longhorns off track
Sourdough Sam and I rode to get ‘em back
Many a good cowboy I have seen fall
And some of them never came back at all

Ride on, ride on Sourdough Sam
True grit wrangler as I am
Your new wife will understand
Chisholm Trail needs a good man

Lightning cracked above Sourdough Sam and me
The rain poured down and it was hard to see
Sourdough Sam spit in the wild longhorn’s face
And the Chisholm Trail claimed another race

Ride on, ride on Sourdough Sam
True grit wrangler as I am
Your new wife will understand
Chisholm Trail needs a good man

That was a wild ride in the wind and rain
Sourdough Sam rode like the hero John Wayne
We buried old Sam where coyotes wail
Before Abilene on the Chisholm Trail

Ride on, ride on Sourdough Sam
True grit wrangler as I am
Your new wife won’t understand
Chisholm Trail claimed a good man

The chorus does a great job summarizing the story with wonderful details in the verse!

I love how you tell the tale of Sourdough Sam! He sounds like the kind of guy you'd want on the trail with you! A really well structured set of lyrics that almost sings itself! I enjoyed my read.
