1976 Buffalo Gals Don't Worry About Fashion

from (New) Years​-​-​PAY WHAT YOU WANT by ellen cherry



1976: Buffalo Gals Don’t Worry About Fashion was inspired by Bonanza Jellybean and Cosmo magazine.


Got a thistle in my cap and a bullet in my gut
Just so you can see what I’m made of
Lips and bones and knees and elbows
Teeth I’ve barely cut
Thank god I’ve got these hips like my mothers

I press them down in my saddle and I ride
I steel against my own self, I ride high

Spent the summer getting dusty
The sun peeled away my sadness
I pushed on like the weather
Work made leather of my vision
And callused up my fingers
I linger for worse, I’d hoped for better

Dress me up, I don’t mind, I can be a paper doll for you
But watch the wind, it can blind you, and that’s my cue

My food, it isn’t free, I watch tv and read the magazines
I see all that I’m supposed to be
