To "Bronco Buster" Flynn
————————————

Tune: "Yankee Doodle"

I

I got your picture Buster dear
A-riding on a pony
Your pony is a real one too.—
You wouldn't have a "phoney"

— Chorus —

Buster Flynn he sure is game
His eyes are full of luster,
I think we'd better change his name
And call him "Bronco Buster"

II

When you grow up to be a man
Be always "rough and ready"
But never brag about it though
Like windy "Bull moose Teddy"

III

And by and by you'll ride out West
Like Cow-boys that you've read off
But don't fall off your pony dear
And break your little head off.

From Your Friend Joe Hill.
With a Kind Greeting.

To Buster Flynn 511 E. 134th str. New York City N.Y.
