"Trail to Mexico"

           
    1. I made up my mind in the early morn
To leave the home where I was born,
To leave my native home for a while,
And travel west to many a mile.
   
   
2.
'Twas in the year of eighty-three
That A.J. Stinson hired me.
He said, "Young man, I want you to go,
And follow my herd to Mexico."
