Merle Haggard No Fan Of The Cowboy

Cowboys 1898 round up in Colorado

Cattle Round Up 1890 – Colorado

December 11, 2014

“The thing that bothers me the most is the recklessness and greed of the local ranchers, who run too many cattle back here, choking with waste the creek that runs through my property. There’s certain times of day that the cowboys like to send them turds down the river. Them f**kers piss me off. if you gotta mess up the ecology of the world in order to raise a bunch of cows, well eat somethin else. I’m not a fan of the cowboys.”
