I have a Freirend
Sabina Desir is her name
Jazz singing is her game
Who is often seen
Wearing a black
Cowboy hat
Don't know if she
Knows that hat is
Sybil of black pride
When black slaves
Were - FREED

Among the few jobs
They could get
Were punching cattle
Calling some man
A cowboy in American English
At the time - meant the same
As it did in British English you see
An insult of the working man

Then came the movies
Westerns films - overnight
Being a cowboys became
Very Very Popular indeed
Every kid - youth - man - wonted to be a cowboy

Freed Black Slaves were to soon find them self's unemployed
Funny that - not

Yes my Friend can wear her black cowboy hat with pride!
