I PRIDE OF THE PRAIRIE MARY
Out on the wild and wooly prairie not far from old Pueblo town there lived a little girl named Mary blue eyes and dresses of brown
From o'er the plains there came a cowboy
he said let's name our wedding day
she bowed her head and whispered now boy
and on their broncos rode away
they rode away, one summer day, they rode away
Pride of the Prairie Mary my own jump up beside me right to my home my heart's been lassoed, no more to roam pride of the prairie Mary my own
He held her bronco while she mounted then asked her may I steal a kiss he stole more kisses than she counted then handy Andy answered this he answered this, I stoled a kiss
Pride of the prairie Mary my own jump up beside me right to my home my heart's been lassoed, no more to roam pride of the prairie Mary my own
