He can tell if a heifer is starting to calve,
I swear from a mile away,
and see if he needs to go pull the calf
by just simply looking that way.

He can see if a windmill is working or not
from his horse on a faraway hill,
and tell what direction the wind's coming from
by watching the tail on the mill.

He knows if a coyote or badger is near
by watching the tracks in the sand,
and see if a staple is loose from a post
on the fence that encircles his land.

He's got eyes like an eagle for finding new calves
that their mamas have hidden all snug;
so why can't he see the mud on his boots
that he's tracking all over my rug?
