Description

Many of these songs, handed down and repeated by word of mouth, are adaptation of old English ballads. Many of them have become so changed by adaptation and transmission that their sources are doubtful . Some few of them originated in Nebraska. Their authenticity is based upon their inclusion in a syllabus of titles, Folk -song of Nebraska and the Central West; direct contribution from Nebraska pioneers; or both:- -- In many compilations, cowboy songs are so classified because they have found particular favor with the cowboys. This group of songs have the additional characteristic of being about cowboy life . Some of them have Nebraska locale.
