The Red Headed Stranger

Last Update: July 14, 2021

The Red Headed Stranger, from Bluerock, Montana

rode into town one day.

n Under his knees was a Raging Black Stallion, n walking behind was a Bay...

The Red Headed Stranger had eyes like the thunder, n his lips... they were sad n tight, For his lil lost darlin lay asleep on the hillside....n his heart was heavy as night....

Don't cross him, Don't boss him, He's wild in his sorrow, He's ridin n hidin his pain...... Don't fight him, Don't spite him, Just wait til tomorrow.... n maybe he'll ride on again....

The yellow hair lady leaned out of her window....n sighed as he passed her way..... She drew back in fear of the Raging Black Stallion......n cast greedy eyes on the Bay.... For how could she know, that this dancin Bay pony had meant more to him than life...... For this was the horse that lil loss darlin had ridin when she was his wife......

The yellow hair lady went down to the tavern n looked up the Stranger there..... He bought er a drank, .....n he gave her some money....... He jus didn't seem to care.....

She followed him out, ... as he saddled the Stallion n he laughs as she grabbed at the Bay......

He shot her so quickly........ They had no time to warn her...... She never heard anyone say.....

Don't cross him....... Don't boss him........ He's wild in his sorrow...... He's ridin n hidin his pain....... Don't fight him, Don't spite him, Just wait til tomorrow.... n maybe he'll ride on again.....

The yellow hair lady was buried at sunset......... The Stranger went free, Of course........ For you can't hang a man..... For killin a woman, ....Whose tryin to steal ya horse........

This is the Tale of The Redheaded Stranger........n if he should pass ya way.......... Stay outa of the path of the Ragin Black Stallion........ N Don't lay a hand on the Bay

In a Lawless Land, in the 1800's, One Law was defiantly enforced. Horse Theifin was an Automatic Hangin, No lawman needed, n No Courtroom in sight, You swung from a tree, Before the Daylight.

There's more.I loved it as a child n made this my rocking lullaby, I sing to my gifts to this day. They still call just for me to sing my song, it must be soothing in some retrospect. I passed it time to time to my lil "Intrest" I've drawn. It will be a while till they catch on. Lol
