The fella that created cowboy boots
Could not have been all there
Those pointed toes and high heels
On shoes that men had to wear.

Whoa is a word the cowboys use
When they don't want their horse to go
They learned that word as they put on their boots
It came from their little toe.

Most cowboys asked, as they were about to die
That their boots stay on there feet
So St. Peter would give them sympathy
If they should happen to meet.

Now I have a pair of cowboy boots
That I really like a lot
Cuz I threw one of those boots away
And the other's a flowerpot.
