|The Chisholm Trail sculpture in Fort Worth, Texas|
tough ride to herd those cattle, did they sing "Cattle Call?"
Portrayed in movies and later TV,
those cowboys must have been something to see.
Right after the Civil War, steers sold up north for forty dollars a head,
but down in Texas, times were tough, a four dollar price meant that living was dead.
So Mr. Chisholm wanted the railroad to come down to the south,
and created the trail instead, news travel by word of mouth.
