So there I wuz . . .

. . . in the PRESENCE


of the World's


ONLY


GIANT MIDGET!


Well, hell, she wuz just a ordinary size gal


(warn't even all that purty to look at).


and I sez to myself . . .


I WANT TO GO BACK TO PHILMONT

Where the old Rayado flows,
Where the rain comes a seepin'
In the tent where you're a sleepin'
And the waters say hello.

I want to wake up in the morning
With my socks all wringing wet,
For it brings back fondest memories,
That a Ranger can't forget.

I want to hike once more the canyon floor
From Scribblins to Old Camp
With my pack sack a-creakin',
With my back sweat a-reekin',
And my legs beginning to cramp.

I want to hike again with such great men
As made those famous treks
From Beaubien to Porky
And from Cito to Car-Max.
