The Ballad of Levi Strauss (standard:poetry, 67 words)
Author: CyranoAdded: Dec 31 2008Views/Reads: 1654/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
When I sit my ass in my saddle, I thank the Lord for Mr. Strauss.

He came to California, his name is Levi Strauss 

And in 1847 he came looking for a house 

With bolts of cloth he sailed Cape Horn 

To mend the tents and wagons 

But pants were needed, and this he heeded 

Those first ones came with buttons! 

Then rivets for the pockets, and fancy stitching too 

These workman clothes they lasted long 

And he colored them indigo blue.
