Zack Waverly Rides Again Page 13

With one eye on the shot gun There came a sudden sound The other eye, the Sheriff As I watched him hit the ground The posse kinda spooked While their horses shuffled 'round They looked in all directions But no shooter could be found Someone in the posse Said "Let's get out of here" Now the Sheriff being dead They all gave way to fear I grabbed the shotgun and took aim As they turned and rode away But a cloud of dust, was all I saw Then I heard Maria pray " Were'd that shot come from" I asked Maria plain A young girl walked out on the porch When Maria called Her name She looked just barely eighteen And I though it no small trifle Cause women seem much older When they hold a Henry rifle "My name Señor, Juanita And Maria is my Mom" I said to her," You've just killed a man, How is it you're so calm" This Pig, he's no man And if I have my way I'll kill every last one That has treated me that way I told Maria we had to go We couldn't stay around The posse would return for sure With more help they'd find in town We saddle up some horses And we rode off like the wind As a plan came to my mind And I couldn't help but grin.
