170          SONGS OF THE COWBOYS
Whenever you start to tackle a steer Never tie hard your maguey.
Put on your dalebueltas, 'Cordln' to California law,
And you will never see your old rim-fires Driftin' down the draw.
WOMEN OUTLAWS By N. Howard Thorp
There's a touch of human pathos, A glamour of the West, Round the names of women outlaws Who have now gone to their rest
Bronco Sue, Belle Star, and Shudders, Pike Kate, and Altar Doane, Calamity Jane, Sister Cummings, And the Rose of Cimmaron.
You *ve all oft heard the saying, "I'd go to Hell for you!" About these women outlaws That saying was too true.
Each left her home and dear one For the man she loved the best, Close by his side on many a wild ride Through the mountains of the West.
They've played their parts in Western Drama, On the great unscreened Western stage, Where the mountains were their platform, Their stage-setting rocks and sage.
