Don't you
By Starlight
Dedicated to:
the 4-H youth at the county fairDoesn't your heart fill with pain

Knowing that you will never see your cow again

Doesn't your whole body ache

Don't you just want to scream and shake

Doesn't it strike you as the most cruel form

Of evil that is around

To send her to the slaughterhouse

And turn your back on her pitiful call

That she loved you unconditionally

Doesn't that matter at all

Those big, brown, loving eyes of hers

Didn't they mean a thing to you

Don't you see that she trusted you

Cherished you, tried her best to please you

Don't you see that no matter what

She would never have harmed you

Don't you miss the silky touch

Of her big, black nose against you

Don't you miss watching her sleep

In the middle of the night

Doesn't it make you weep

When you stare at the silent starlight

Doesn't your heart wring with pain

Staring at the spot in which for endless nights she had lain

Doesn't it make you ache to know

That with her simple heart she loved you so

Don't you remember it was she

Who was your comfort when you felt lonely

Don't you cry on lonely nights

Don't you think that something's just not right

Don't you miss hearing her moo

Don't you, Don't you
