"Code Of The West" lyrics

Code Of The West

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 building fences
Ihen I ain't for hire
You get me for nothing
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 it unto you
