But if you will pay good wages and transportation too,
I think, sir, I will go with you to the range of the buffalo/'
4     "Yes, I will pay good wages,
give transportation too, Provided you will go with me
and stay the summer through; But if you should grow homesick,
come back to Jacksboro, I won't pay transportation
from the range of the buffalo."
5     It's now our outfit was complete
seven able-bodied men, With navy six and needle gun
our troubles did begin; Our way it was a pleasant one,
the route we had to go, Until we crossed Pease River
on the range of the buffalo.
