The Cowboy Code

I think it is time Gene Autry stepped in to remind our friends in Congress and the President what it means to be an American. This is especially appropriate since “All Hat No Cattle” wants us to believe he is just a good ole Texas boy and just follows “The Cowboy Way”. The following was published in 1939 but it still applies today and for true Americans always will. I keep a framed copy on my office wall.


The cowboy must never shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair advantage.

He must never go back on his word, or a trust confided in him.

He must always tell the truth.

He must be gentle with children, the elderly and animals.

He must not advocate or possess racially or religiously intolerant ideas.

He must help people in distress.

He must be a good worker.

He must keep himself clean in thought, speech, action, and personal habits.

He must respect women, parents and his nation’s laws.

The cowboy is a patriot.
