Lonesome Poke Town


As the train was approaching a small town out West
The passenger looked out of the window and saw the most
beautiful horse in the world

The train was not scheduled to stop there
But, Jack, the passenger pulled the stop cord

Jack went into the train station He asked the station master about the
horse
He asked the station master about the horse

It so happened that he owned the horse
Jack asked if he could buy the horse

The station master said, 'Yes'
Jack paid the master $25.00

And the most beautiful horse was his now
And he named him 'Irish'
