The Colonel gives advice and takes it --
With Pawnee Bill and his camels --
From sawdust to sagebrush --
Tammen gets his foot in the door --
The auctioneer calls --
The Sioux's last stand in cinema --
A tired promoter without backers --
Faltering giant --
On Lookout Mountain lies a grave. Illustrations: Ma's blue eyes were moist and her grasp on my shoulder tightened fiercely --
"Is this cowboy going on my himself?" --
The kind lady saw me working on it and she came and gave me a hand --
She put it on a plate and turned --
"Kin the Colonel shoot! Kin a fish swim? Kin a bird fly?" --
"Oh!" he said. "You must be Carl Muller's boy. Howdy, son. I'm mighty glad t'see yuh" --
"Did y'ever see an explosion? Well, that there bay jus' exploded" --
"Injun hoss? I asks Grey Eagle. He grunts an' nods" --
The horses kept up a steady, mile-eating pace all the way into town --
Lonnie was shaken loose on the second jump. He hit the ground hard --
I guess I was up before anyone Christmas morning --
I drew a lot of quick pictures of Uncle Bill --
"That's a shame Cody, but your show's a real money maker" --
Mick was pretty good at swipin' things off the push carts --
Raidin' Injuns ran off some hosses belongin' t'some nearby ranchers --
My bullet hit the rear Injun, went through him, and into the one in front --
Then he waited for the crowd to quiet before he swept off his now famous Stetson --
Orapeso [Orapeza] showed me many little tricks with the reata --
The poor cow lay on the barn floor and moaned out her pain --
"She poisoned me, I tell yuh" Uncle Bill shouted, rising on an elbow --
Uncle Bill had given him and four kings a wild stagecoach ride --
He beamed at me. "Damn if I don't myself, Dan" --
"It sure ain't doin' him any good," Tammen agreed. "Buffalo Bill is a world-wide institution" --
Of course he was always an easy mark for anyone who asked for help --
The wigmaker assured him that no one would ever know he had on a wig --
"It jus' goes t'show yuh, Dan. If yuh're willin' t'be dirty yuh can get all the money yuh want." --
I threw myself on my knees beside her bed and buried my face in the covers --
I didn't look at him. I was beginning to feel ashamed at having failed to do my job well --
I picked up a ride into town on a freighter's wagon --
He threw back a tuft of his sandy hair and started to play the mouth organ --
"The next time Charley sees 'im, Carl's got the Cross-Up brand on a fine roan gelding" --
Smoky's eyes became mere slits. "Muller," he said, "yuh can't laugh yuhr way out o' this." --
"Where yuh from?" the lawman asked --
Another man, an expectant, fearful look around his eyes, held my horse's head --
Finally Uncle bill smiled. "Do I recollect right? Yuh're nineteen now?" --
"Dan," he would say his eyes pleading, "I'll be sick, boy" --
We went together to Irontail's lodge. His copper-colored face was crinkled with pain --
The hair-wet back was slippery. I felt myself flying through the air --
That was Hightower's moment. He exploded, high, wide, and handsome --
Besides, I got interested in one of the girls on the ranch --
I bought two horses at a livery stable in Denver, and from there I struck out south --
So Uncle Bill signed a note for another $20,000 --
"Oh, Bill," Tammen said, "I thought I'd ask about that note" --
When Isham came to the block I was nearly sick with anger --
I quietly climbed out of my blankets and drew my gun --
"You speak with straight tongue," Irontail commented --
Rheumatism made his mounting of Isham a nightmare --
I learned that cattle and horses are worked differently in the Southwest than they are in the north country --
At last I managed to get up the courage to offer the Colonel the little poke I'd been nursing.
Responsibility: with illus. by the author.
