Jim had borrowed Sam's good gold and did n't want
to pay, The only shot he saw was to give poor Sam away. He sold out Sam and Barnes and left their friends
to mourn, Oh, what a scorching Jim will get when Gabriel
blows his horn.
And so he sold out Sam and Barnes and left their
friends to mourn, Oh, what a scorching Jim will get when Gabriel
blows his horn. Perhaps he's got to heaven, there's none of us can
say, But if I am right in my surmise he's gone the other
way.
SKY-HIGH By N. Howard Thorp Tne scream of the outlaw split the air >. As we tied him hard and fast To the snubbing-post in the horse corral, For his turn had come at last
To learn the feel of spurs of steel As they graze along each side, En Bugger pulled up his chaps a hole, For he was the next to ride.
We knew he'd strike, we knew he'd bite, We knew he'd kick and rear, So we grabbed his ears en held his head, Till Bugger got up near.
