Subject(s): Children; Childhood


I'm sick of school an' sick of home
An' so I've started out
Acrost the western plains to roam
An' be a noble scout.
Home ain't a bit ad-vent-u-rus;
You can't have any fun,
An' my, there'd be a fearful fuss
If I should get a gun.

An' so I've packed my haversack
As skillful as I can
An' I ain't never comin' back
Till I'm a famous man,
Till I have slayed a Injun chief
An' shot a grizzly bear,
An' maybe chased a cattle thief
An' ketched him in his lair.

I guess I'm far away, all right,
An' awful hungry, too,
It's awful dark outside, to-night,
I'm kinda scared, ain't you?
I want my mama and my dad,
It ain't no fun to roam,
I'm just a tired little tad.
Please, Mister, take me home!
