Don't Squat With Yer Spurs On!

A Cowboy's Guide To Life
By: Texas Bix Bender


The CODE of the West...
Write it in your heart,
Stand by the code, and it will stand by you.
Ask no more and give no less than honesty, courage,
loyalty, generosity, and fairness.

Don't never interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

Every quarrel is a private one. Outsiders are never welcome.

There's more ways to skin a cat than stickin' his head in a
boot jack and jerkin' on his tail.

After weeks of beans and taters,
even a change to taters and beans is good.

Never take to sawin' on the branch that's supportin' you,
unless you're bein' hung from it.

Never kick a fresh turdd on a hot day.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.

When dealin' with a slick son of a bitch,
start off by pinnin' him down and changin' his oil.

The biggest liar you'll ever have to deal with probably watches you
shave his face in the mirror every morning.

The best way to find a lost stray is to go to the place you
would go if you were a lost stray.

Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.

Never follow good whiskey with water, unless you're out of good whiskey.

Don't worry about biting off more than you can chew.
Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think.

Good judgment comes from experience,
and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

Generally, you ain't learnin' nothing when your mouth is a-jawin'.

Tellin' a man to go to hell and makin' him do it
are two entirely different propositions.

Never miss a chance to rest your horse.

The best way to cook any part of a rangy ol' longhorn is to toss it in
a pot with a horseshoe, and when the horseshoe is soft and tender,
you can eat the beef.

Generally speaking, fancy titles and nightshirts are a waste of time.

Trust everybody in the game, but always cut the cards.

A womans heart is like a campfire.
If you don't tend to it regular, you'll soon lose it.

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd,
take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

No matter where you ride to, that's where you are.

A body can pretend to care, but they can't pretend to be there.

The best way to have quiche for dinner is to make it up
and put it in the oven to bake at about 325 degrees.
Meanwhile, get out a large T-bone, grill it, and when it's done, eat it.
As for the quiche, continue to let it bake, but otherwise ignore it.

A lot of good luck is undeserved, but then so is a lot of bad luck.

You can just about always stand more 'n you think you can.

When it comes to cussin' don't swallow your tongue;
Use both barrels and air out your lungs.

Remember, even a kick in the caboose is a step forward.

There's two theories to arguin' with a woman. Neither one works.

If you're gonna drive cattle through town, do it on a Sunday.
There's little traffic and people are more prayerful
and less disposed to cuss at you.

------------

Always try to be a bit nicer than is called for,
but don't take too much guff.

Egg shells in the coffee keep it shy of bitterness.

Always remember your horse hears and smells a whole lot more 'n you do.

Kickin' never gets you nowheres, less'n you're a mule.

When you throw your weight around,
be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

Too much debt doubles the weight on your horse
and puts another in control of the reins.

On the range, an unlocked ranch house is an invitation
to a weary cowboy to help himself to food and shelter.
Cash payment for this kind of hospitality
is a serious breach of etiquette.
A note of thanks and payment in kind is all that is expected.

The only way to drive cattle fast is slowly.

The basics of roping are a sense of rhythm,
good timing, and an eye for distance.
You might also wanta keep this in mind
when you're two-stepping around the dance floor.

Don't let too much reality into your life
that there's no room left for dreaming.

Always take a good look at what you're about to eat.
It's not so important to know what it is,
but it's critical to know what it was.

Ain't never seen a critter feelin' sorry for itself.

The quickest way to double your money
is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

If you drink Tequila don't dive off the sidewalk.
Most generally the water is too low,
and in nine out of ten towns, there is at least a $50 fine for it.

Most folks are like a bob-wire fence. They have their good points.

Nobody ever drowned himself in his own sweat.

No tree is too big for a short dog to lift his leg on.

Never lie unless you have to,
and if you don't have a damn good lie, stick to the truth.

It doesn't matter how fast you are
if the other guy is so much as a hair faster.

You can't always tell a gunslinger by the way he walks.

You can never step in the same river twice.

Any time a large herd moves through a civilized area
there's a lot of sh!t to clean up.

If you want to forget all your troubles,
take a little walk in a brand new pair of high-heeled ridn' boots.

Don't get mad at somebody who knows more 'n you do.
It ain't their fault.

It's best to keep you troubles pretty much to yourself,
'cause half the people you'd tell 'em to won't give a damn,
and the other half will be glad to hear you've got 'em.

The wildest critters live in the city!
