Cable Car Cowboy

      So mamma don't you worry
            things are really going fine
      I'm working now as a brakeman
            on the California line
      And the folks are mighty friendly
            when they hop on for a ride
      And when it's cold and rainy
            my lady loves to ride inside

Kate talks about Cable Car Cowboy Time: 0:39

"I'm going to do this song that I wrote at the cable car benefit some time ago at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. And this is a story which is, incredibly enough, true. I didn't know that when I wrote it, but last night at the concert that we did in Davis, a man came up to me white as a sheet and said, 'That's the story of my grand uncle.'
This is about a young man who lived in West Texas. And his girlfriend decided she was going to go to California, to San Francisco. And against his mother's wishes, he quit his job on the ranch and went after her. But he had to find a job, and so he tangled with the cable car."
