Lackey Bill
He handed me a letter that gave me to understand That the girl I loved in Texas had married another man.
So I read a little farther and found those words were
true. I turned myself all around, not knowing what to do. I'll sell my horse, saddle, and bridle, cow-driving I'll
resign, I'll search this world from town to town for the girl
I left behind.
Here the gold I find in plenty, the girls to me are
kind, But my pillow is haunted with the girl I left behind. It's trouble and disappointment is all that I can see, For the dearest girl in all the world has gone square
back on me.
