Marty Robbins’ A HUNDRED AND SIXTY ACRES

A Hundred and Sixty Acres

(Marty Robbins)

texas-river

I got a hundred and sixty acres in the valley,
Got a hundred and sixty acres of the best,
Got an old stove there that’ll cook three square
And a bunk where I can lay me down to rest.

Up at dawn to greet the sun,
I’ve forgotten what a care or worry means.
Head for home when day is done
With my pocket money jinglin’ in my jeans.
I’ve got a hundred and sixty acres full of sunshine,
Got a hundred and sixty million stars above,
Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!

Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!
Got an old paint hoss, I’m the guy who’s boss
On the hundred and sixty acres that I love!
