Stranger! She's the durndest
Risin' four year old this spring,
Bought her in Detroit one day,,
Drove hir home here all the waj .
She's a beauty, black as ink,
Set of eyes that never blink
When your on tho road at night,
And the goin isn't right.
Over roads both good and bad
She just tears away like mad,
And no matter what her stride
Ne'er a drop is on her side.
Jghtening struck Si Perkins'
Got there first and gave alarm
Took out every horse and cow,
Most the wagons and a plow,
Lucky that I had her then
Minutes counted more'h tneh .
She aint scared of any bandt
Drive her up and let her stand,
Doesn't need a hitchin' stap.
Never have to say "gid-dap!"
She's midlin' size, not big, nor
It's way and best of all.
Her pedigree, I've got it straight,
It's registered in our own state;
She's from the best of stock all
A thoroughbred in every pound.
The man who raised her and her
Proudly gave them all his name,
They're what made his reputa
And spread it over all creation
'Sell her!" No-not on your life,
I'd as soon part with my wife.
Money piled up by the cord
Wouldn't buy her,
SHE'S MY FORD.
