“The Toughest Cowboy Ever” May 23, 2011
I recently posted this on a website wanting stories about “The Toughest Cowboy Ever”. Nobody over there commented on it, so I’ll try it here. An old friend of mine, Bernard Michelle, a member of one of my first bands, “The Roughriders” told me this story many years ago:
A couple of cowboys on a cattle drive were sitting by their fire in the middle of the night when a bearded stranger wearing bear-skins galloped up in a cloud of dust. He was riding a huge snorting bull with a big brass ring through its nose.
He jumped off , punched the bull in the head to knock it out, came to the campfire, and emptied a hot pan of beans straight into his mouth, washing it down with a whole pot of boiling coffee.
He then slapped the bull awake, threw a leg over it as it rose to its feet, exclaiming, “Sorry t’eat an’ run boys, but there’s a _mean_ sonofabitch on m’tail!”
