Ellis Parker Butler - Western

The Cowboy had a sterling heart,
The Maiden was from Boston,
The Rancher saw his wealth departó
The Steers were what he lost on.

The Villain was a bankerís limb,
His spats and cane were nifty;
The Maiden needs must marry himó
Her father was not thrifty.

The Sheepmen were as foul as pitch,
The Cowboy was a hero,
The gold mine made the hero rich,
The Villainís score was zero.

The Sheepmen tried to steal the maid,
The Villain sought the attic,
The Hero fifteen bad men slayed
With his blue automatic.

The Hero kissed the willing lass,
The final scene was snappy;
The Villain went to Boston, Mass.,
And everyone was happy.
