Roger Miller - The ballad of waterhole #3 (the code of the west) lyrics


The code of the west ain't some words on a page, You just naturally know it when you come of age
You eat when you're hungry, you drink when you're dry, You look every man in the eye
It's the code of the west when the boys talk of women, The code of the west what you know you don't tell
The code of the west a man soaps his own saddle, Brands his own cattle and some of his neighbour's as well



If you're buildin' fences then I ain't for hire, You get me for nothin' and I'll bring the wire
You patch up my windows, I'll plumb up your doors, If you scratch my back I'll scratch yours
It's the code of the west you must honour your neighbour, The code of the west to your own self be true
The code of the west you must do unto others, Do unto others before them others do ït unto you
