Thanks Q and Joe!

yes on the directions gee and haw. they make sense in the context of her plans AND in the context of teaching them (like she taught her "true love"?) right from wrong. My biggest problem is the 3rd line in the 2nd verse...both versions sounded to me like "sell 'em...tell 'em" but that made no sense...I'm thinking now it might be "saddle 'em ... tell 'em" with "saddle" sorta getting slurred through so it sounds to my (admittedly impaired) hearing, like "sell".

"fill" makes sense too--as in feed the wild horses so you tame them.
Thanks for the compliment Joe--I really like this song! I'm sure Tim can throw in some of his "tasty licks," as Sandy Paton called them, on the mandolin, and some harmony too.

Mudcats, as always, are the best!
