S AM BASS was born in Indiana, it was his native home, And at the age of seventeen young Sam began to
roam. Sam first came out to Texas a cowboy for to be, A kinder-hearted fellow you seldom ever see.
Sam used to deal in race stock, one called the
Denton mare, He matched her in scrub races, and took her to the
Fair. Sam used to coin the money and spent it just as free, He always drank good whiskey wherever he might be.
Sam left the Collin's ranch in the merry mondi of
May With a herd of Texas cattle the Black Hills for to
see, Sold out in Custer City and then got on a spree, A harder set of cowboys you seldom ever see.
On their way back to Texas they robbed the U. P.
train, And then split up in couples and started out again. Joe Collins and his partner were overtaken soon, With all their hard-earned money they had to meet
their doom.
