Ringtail

My name is Martin Parmer, you might never heard of me
I was born up in Virginia, made my way to Tennessee
And I ran the mill on Yellow Creek for Montgomery Bell
And I used that steel to kill the Brits in the War of 1812

I am the ring-tailed panther, wild wooly, hard to curry
When Im mad I fight, and when I fight I whoop

I drifted on to Missouri where I built myself a home
In the Fishing River Valley where no white man would go
And I raised myself a family and killed myself some bars
And made a truce with Sioux except the killer they called Two Hearts

Well I heard word of a wilder place down in Mexico
In a land that they called Tejas and I talked my gal to go
Then me and the Edwards brothers and a band of Cherokee
Said well call this place Fredonia, free of Mexican tyranny

Well I lost that fight with Mexico and it burned me up inside
And it took the Texians 10 more years to figure I was right
But when the Alamo was lost, I was there at Washington
Declaring Texas freedom from Santa Annas guns

When Sam Houston won the war, he was on my Isoms gray
And Sam was born on the day I died, Texas Independence Day
My name is Martin Parmer, let me tell you this my friend
I was born up in Virginia, but I am a Texian

My name is Martin Parmer, you might never heard of me
I was born up in Virginia, made my way to Tennessee
Then I drifted on to Missouri where I killed myself some bars
Then on down to Texas, where I helped put up that Lone Star
