Cowboy Poet Bj Smith's Up-dated Cowboy Poem

Greatest Together

You won’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been
A proud and wholesome heritage will never be your kin
So sit down by the fire, pull up yourself a stump
I’ll tell you ‘bout the city that will tolerate no slump

The streets were swelled with wrangler’s way back when it began
The greatest outdoor show on earth, Ladue and Weddick’s plan
More than a hundred stampedes now have danced on down the Bow
And still that cowboy pride embraces us like long ago

A pride in our accomplishments pursued as if like vultures
A pride in western values, integrity and cultures
Has harnessed our philanthropists, consumed collective will
So that Alberta heritage, throughout the year will fill

And now a year round gathering place that boosts our civic spirit
Will open up its welcome doors so everyone can hear it
They’ll meet aboriginal peoples, in their authentic ways
And give our youth encouragement creating talent rays

And even though our city now exceeds a million strong
This great together campaign ensures rural lives belong
So in the heart of Calgary where one and all can see
We’re proud to know this is the home of generosity
