Comments about A Cowboy's Prayer by Charles Badger Clark

  • Mark Baxter (7/9/2020 5:03:00 PM)

    Probably the single most recited piece of cowboy poetry in existence. I've often found a printed copy on the wall of elderly westerners and rarely does a year go by that I don't hear this given at the funeral of an old cowboy by one of his friends. Well worth memorizing.
