Story

Maggie's family have been cattlemen in Florida for over 200 years, and this song is for them. When cattlemen call their cattle, many use a type of yodel - something that carries across vast and open land. You'll hear this in the song as well. This is for the centuries of hard-working, decent men and women who make their living off cattle, and off the land.

Lyrics

I'm a West Florida wrangler And I live on a ranch I come from a long line Of Cracker cowhands My life's in the saddle With my dog at my side We run the cattle, patch fences And keep our eyes on the sky There's a storm up there brewin' It rolls out of the Gulf It meets the hot air from over The land where we work The livestock will stand it 'Til the lightnin' gets bad Then they'll take off and run Down into the Swamp (yodel) I'm a Cracker cowboy That's all that I know I live on the Florida Gulf Coast I love this old land That I've lived on so long Unlike the cattle And the tourists I like bein' alone We go down in the swamps With our thick leather boots The kind that the moccasins And the briars can't get through We round up the cattle Head 'em out of the bog To the thick, green pastures And the clover they love (yodel) © 2010 Lucky Mud
