Hard Drivin Man - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

In Hay fields and open waters
Clearin brush to work the land
tends his sheep upon highest mountain tops
drives herd through Rio Grande
Rests briefly, in the clover
with a pinch of chew, his only friend,
Red Man
And the heartache's never over
for a hard drivin man
Fishes all night in deep sea waters
His achin body works his plan.
Pushes hard til arms fall out their shoulders
not unlike a well cooked ham
There'll be no respite til sun up
then schools come in again
No peaceful sleep forthcoming
for a hard drivin man
You see him waterin the horses
flaggin balls for sports grand slam
out slingin hash on chain gang road crew
Pays his debt to Uncle Sam

In this Hell he finds no solace
It's his God's master plan
Another day of bone break work
for a hard drivin man
So, when you see him on the highway
over windswept sea or sand
Show him love and kindness
He built the town you're livin in
Paved the roads you tramp all over
his dusty trail has no end
and the heartache's never over,
for a hard drivin man
And the heartache's never over
Fore he's a hard drivin man
