The cowboy’s name is Hopalong Joe, and his horse’s name is Bartleby. Joe is singing a serenade to Bartleby called “Oh Look How Blue the Sky Is!” They are in Banff, by a river. Bartleby is a good horse, he doesn’t want to run away. Hopalong Joe is playing the ukulele, it sounds terrible! The smell in the air is like after a spring rain, and you can smell Joe’s aftershave. There’s a farm in the background, where they grow potatoes. Joe bought Bartleby at auction, for $100. Joe’s wife is at home knitting him a sweater for Christmas. They are going to the rodeo in Strathmore to win lots of money.
