CHEROKEE CHARLIE

 

I WAS STANDING AT THE BAR,

WITH MY FOOT ON THE RAIL.

WHEN EVERYTHING GOT QUIET,

AND THE BARKEEP, WELL, HE TURNED PALE.

 

THERE IN THE DOORWAY

STOOD A GIANT; OF SOME SORTS,

IT WAS CHEROKEE CHARLIE,

IN THOSE AWFUL, AWFUL SHORTS.

 

HE HAD COME TO MAKE A STATEMENT,

TO THOSE THAT HAD SOME DOUBT,

OF THE MIGHT OF HIS COOPERS,

WHEN THE TIN CHICKENS WERE LET OUT.

 

EVERY FACE IN THAT PLACE GREW QUIET,

NOT A SOUND COULD BE HEARD.

AS HE SLOWLY WALKED TO THE BAR;

GIVE ME A CROWN ROYAL, HE PURRED.

 

WELL, THE LADIES WERE ALL A TWITTER,

EXCITEMENT, IT RAN HIGH!

CHARLIE SLOWLY LOOKED AROUND

WITH A TWINKLE IN HIS EYE.

 

HE SPOKE WITH A SOFT VOICE

THE WORDS, SWEET, LIKE A SONG

I CAME TO PROVE MY SKILL

I WON'T BE HERE LONG

 

HE DOWNED HIS CROWN ROYAL,

THEN STRODE TO THE DOOR.

HE WAS OUTSIDE IN AN INSTANT,

THE BAR GREW NOISY ONCE MORE.

 

BUT SOON THE SOUND OF GUNFIRE,

CAME DRIFTING ON THE WIND!

BRINGING THE SOUND OF CLANGING CHICKENS

AND THE LAUGHER OF MY FRIEND.

Now ole' Badger Mountain Charlie

is a shooter some would say

Snuck around behind everybody's backs

and bought a 39A

 

Kept it in a closet for dang near a year

Would take it out and polish it but wouldn't fire the thing

Why he named it a 416 Rigby Pinfire is not very clear

 

So one day ole' Willie made him take it to the range

He loaded it up and levered it and to Charlie's dismay

It made a loud noise which he thought was very strange

Now he loves his new toy--that Marlin 39A
