A cowboy classic from 1911 by John Grafton Rogers and John H. Gower. Tow headed means blonde. A quirt is a small whip. I stole this song from my good buddy Anne Price, who sings on the refrains. Allen Hopkins added the harmonica part.

Story behind the song
I heard Anne Price sing this song and I immediately added it to my own repertoire. In spite of this brazen act of musical thievery, Anne was gracious enough to sing harmony on the refrains. She has a slightly different version available on her own SoundClick music page.
