Relevant Verse:
Calça justa bem 'sticada Já manchada p'lo selim, Polainas afiveladas. Antigamente era assim; Mantas de cor nas boleias (ai) P´ras toiradas e pr'a ceias. De milorde aguisalhada, À cabeça da manada Trote largo e para a frente, Com os seus cavalos baios, As pilecas eram raios Fidalgos iam co'a gente. E p'la ponte de Tornada Por lá é que era o caminho Bem conduzindo a manada A passo, devagarinho, E quem mandava o campino (ai) Era o mestre Victorino. Praça cheia, toca o hino É dos Gamas, gado matreiro Victor Morais, o campino, Anadia, o cavaleiro Que sortes tão bem mandadas Haviam nessas toiradas. Nos tempos que não vivi Findavam as brincadeiras Nas barracas do Levi Com dois tintos das Gaeiras Entre cartazes, letreiros Com toiros, cavaleiros
