True Cowboys Are The Ones Who Aren’t Afraid To Get Dirty.

I’ve been riding cows on the range ever since I could breathe. My spurs have always had jingle bobs on them and my boots have always been tall. My hats have always been flat and my ropes long. The words I have spoke have been as honest as the horse between my legs. And my life as simple as the ground I walk.
But we’re disappearing you see all the cowboys like me? Where have they all gone the real ones the gritty ones the get er done ones? If anyone wants to find me I’ll be out on the range you see? If you find me say howdy and let me know we’re not the last of a dying breed.

The phrase ‘he’ll do to ride the river with’ comes from the trail drives. Often a river needed to be crossed is suddenly flooded with swift currents from flash floods many miles away. These can come up quite suddenly and a herd caught in one is in a lot of trouble.
A cowboy who would go into such a whirling watery mess to help another rider is risking his own life to do so. Hence, if a cowboy will do that, he’s not only brave, but strong and loyal, a good friend.
So if there’s someone in your life who you would trust with anything and everything, he’ll ‘do to ride the river with’. :)
