The Lyrics

*ganglia: nerve tissue outside the central nervous system; nates: buttocks; delta rhythms: low brain waves associated with deep sleep
Gored! I was horned, a wranglin' man,
Tryin' to break a big 'n', lassoing out west I am.
Sent me, that bull, heavin', the rope still in my hand,
Then I was horned, my ganglia* rammed.

Well it's hard to be a wrangler when you're gored, yeah,
And wounded with a long rent in the bum.
I was horned in the crack of my gray-brown butt,
Holin' brown highway--mighty stunned.


Doc's got my nates* groomed so clean, post-hornin'
Leanin' in. . .my ass he'll bend to see.
He says, "Half-assed," a good line, this clown is a wry dude.
Morphine, delta rhythms*, sink in world of sleep.

Gored! I was horned, a wranglin' man,
[Repeat and drift off]

You're a one-man ganglia. This is right up Guy's alley, and if he doesn't five this (I sure did), he oughta turn in his card.
