A Man Named Hods
But I packed him back to Santa Fe and there I found his mules,
For them dad-blamed two critters had got the In­dians fooled.
I don't know how they done it, but they shore did
get away, And them two mules is livin' up to this very day.
Old Hodsie's feet got toughened up, he got to be
a sport, He opened up a gamblin' house and a place of low
He got the prettiest dancing girls that ever could be
found,— Them girls' feet was like rubber balls and they
never staid on the ground.
And then thar came Billy the Kid, he envied Hodsie's wealth,
He told old Hods to leave the town, 'twould be bet­ter for his health;
Old Hodsie took the hint and got, but he carried all his wealth.
And he went back to Noo York State with lots of
dinero, And now they say he's senator, but of that I shore
don't know.
