A town in the south





A Town

  
A town in the south
And the west of the state
Makes special for livin
At this modern date

When cities and travel
And politics high
Make people be crazy
And just want to fly

Its been there for years
And never was great
Though cowboys and injuns
New it to rate

So quiet and peaceful
That town seems to be
Down by a river
That flows on so free

A train and a crossroad
Draw people by
They stop and they visit
This town by and by

They talk of its beauty
And all of its ways
Then back to the cites
To spend all their days

The buildings stand old
Though well built and true
The Strater the General
To name just a few

The bars are still lively
And scenting of beer
Since Cisco and Doc
And the cattlemen year

To my way of bein
Their passins okay
These people of cities
That come here today

My hats off to towns
That are quiet and slow
Like a town in the south
Called Old Durango
