Cowboy Dan liked a little extra with his dinner,
A little something for his brisket and his biscuits.
“What good is chicken fry without gravy?” he’d cry,
“Why, that’s like cake without icing! I might as well eat dirt and die!”
There was only one problem.
You see, for Cowboy Dan, gravy was everything
There was gravy for biscuits,
Gravy for cornbread and beans,
Gravy for chicken fried steak, roast and another gravy for brisket.
Red gravy for spaghetti,
Cream cheese gravy for cake,
Mayo gravy for hamburgers,
Alfredo gravy for noodles,
White gravy for sausage, skillet gravy for turkey,
Every good gravy-loving cowboy is a little quirky.
Ranch dressing gravy on tomatoes,
Extra buttercream gravy on cookies,
And whipped gravy on pie.
Red gravy for enchiladas, brown gravy on beef tips,
Every good cowboy knows the difference.
If a dish doesn’t require gravy,
Cowboy Dan will be sure to oblige,
Meringue gravy on coconut cream pie,
Gravy on rice, gravy on chips,
A proper cowboy eats gravy, not sour cream dip.
No matter what’s on Cowboy Dan’s plate,
He’ll never really get a taste, but that’s all right.
As long as he’s got a bowl of gravy,
Every dish will be mighty tasty.
