" So, if none o' you punchers claims dis cow, Mr. Stock 'Sociation need n't get 'larmed, So old nigger Add, just brand her now, For one more brand or less won't do no harm."
Sung first to me by John Collier, Cornvdas Mountain, New Mexico, July, 1899. Appeared first in my previous copyrighted book.
Windy Bill was a Texas man,
And he could rope, you bet; Talk of the steer he could n't tie down
Hadn't sorter been born yet; The boys they knew of an old black steer,
A sort of an old outlaw, Who ran down in the bottom
Just at the foot of the draw.
This slim black steer had stood his ground With punchers from everywhere;
The boys they bet Bill two to one He could n't quite get there.
