Customer Reviews ~
"This book contains the lyrics, melodies and guitar chords for 31 cowboy songs. The "Cowboy Lore" side of the book is a lot of fun, especially the insults and slang. What are 'whistle berries'? A plate of beans, of course."--Dirty Linen, March 1996
"I bought your 'Cowboy Songs, Jokes, Lingo 'Lore' and it had my husband in stitches." Kathleen C. Vandermortel
"The book is fun to use, interspersed as it is with old photos, lore and "25 Autnentic Cowboy Instults." My kids may not have learned all the songs yet, but I've been called some interesting things since this book appeared around the house!"
