[QUOTE=Xyzzy;559616][YOUTUBE]p-9-3DtUzug[/YOUTUBE][/QUOTE]The plight of Nelson the Norfolk Terrier reminded me of a song I heard many years ago. I was prompted to look it up.

The rendition (on YouTube) [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQMH3KgYsTY]I'd Like to be a Cowgirl[/url] (Cathy Fink, CD [i]Grandma Slid Down the Mountain[/i], 1984) is pretty close to what I remember, but its release date is later than when I heard the song.

I was unable to track down who wrote the lyrics. I do know it has been around a long time. This version (also on YouTube), [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw-rPE83_Yw]I'd Love to be a Cowgirl[/url] was recorded by Patsy Montana in 1939.
