Subject: RE: Your favorite cowboy/western folk songs
Has anyone mentioned Bury Me Out on the Prairie?
"Wrap me up in my blanket,
Bury me deep in the ground
Cover me over with boulders
Of granite, gray and round."

I love that lugubrious song. I always did wonder, though, about the availability of granite boulders on the prairie. Oh, well.
