Jake Spencer hired me.
Says, “Young man, I want you to go
Follow my herd into Mexico.
Started back to the . . . home
Back to the girl was to be my own.
Says, “Young man . . .
Oh, young fella, you can seek another wife.”
Curse the gold and silver, too.
Curse the girl that won’t be true.
I’ll go right back to the Rio Grande,
Get me a job with a cattle band.
Buddy, oh, Buddy, oh, please don’t go,
. . . forever . . .
If you . . .
Don’t go back where the bullets fly.
