BILLY VENERO
B ILLY VENERO heard them say, In an Arizona town one day, That a band of Apache Indians were upon the trail
of death; Heard them tell of murder done, Three men killed at Rocky Run, " They're in danger at the cow-ranch," said Venero, under breath.
Cow-Ranch, forty miles away, Was a little place that lay
In a deep and shady valley of the mighty wilderness; Half a score of homes were there, And in one a maiden fair
Held the heart of Billy Venero, Billy Venero's little Bess.
So no wonder he grew pale
When he heard the cowboy's tale
Of the men that he'd seen murdered the day before
at Rocky Run. 11 Sure as there's a God above, I will save the girl I love; By my love for little Bessie I will see that something's
done."
