Buffalo Skinners Lyrics

[Bm] 'Twas in the town of [A] Jacksburo, in the [G]
year of [Bm]'73
That a [D] man by the name of [G] Kre- [A] ggo come [D]
walking up to [G] me
Saying [D] how you doing young [G] fel- [A] ler and [D]
would you like to [G] go
To [Bm] spend the summer [A] pleasantly on the [G]
range of the [Bm] buffalo

Me being out of employment, to Kreggo I did say
This summer on the buffalo range depends upon the pay
For if you pay good wages, transportation to and fro'
It's likely I go with you to the range of the buffalo

Yes I will pay good wages, and transportation too
If you'll agree to work for me until the season's
through
But if you do get homesick and you try to run away
You'll starve to death on the buffalo range, and also
lose your pay

With all this fancy talking he set up quite a plan
Some ten or twelve in number, all able bodied men
Our trip it was a pleasant one as we hit the westward
road
Until we reached Las Cruces in old New Mexico

Well then our pleasures ended and our troubles they
begun
When lightning struck the wagon boys and made the
buffalo run
A thousand head a-breathin' fire, stampeding they did
go
And outlaws waiting to pick us off from the hills of
Mexico

Well the working season ended but the drover would not
pay
He said 'you boys been extravagant , your all in debt
to me'
But the cowboys never heard such a thing as a bankrupt
drover-o
So they left his bones to bleach in the hills of Mexico

Across the Rio Grande my boys and homeward we are bound
No one on this buffalo range will ever more be found
Go home to your wives and sweethearts, tell others not
to go
To spend the summer pleasantly on the range of the
buffalo
