Divorce In Cactus Center.
DOWN here In Cactus Center we ain'l
herded much in schools;
We don't know no college rah rahs,
but we ain't a bunch o' fools.
And you can bet no legal lighters can
come here and hem and haw
And heel rope us and hog tie us in the
meshes of the law.
The last galoot who started fer to run a
crooked course
Was the lawyer fer old Squaw Bill in a
suit fer a divorce.
Old Bill's a tepee Yankee, and he thought
he'd try the law
Fer to shake his lovin' woman—a poor
Jicarilla squaw.
Well, when the case come off, sir, old
Bill, who's struck it rich.
Sat behind the shifty lawyer who set out
to break the hitch.
The squaw can't talk no English, but Jest
spraw'.s there on the floor
A-nursin' one wee Infant and a-quietln'
four more.
Well, the lawyer proved it backwards,
and no doubt he proved it stra.ght.
That there weren't no legal marriage and
old Bill could pull his freight.
And the squaw she can't say nothin', but
jest sets there in a fog.
With her eyes all bright an' awimmln',
like a starved and kicked cur dog.
Well, the court took an adjournment, and
Bill's lawyer shook his hand
And said. "We've won it, Willum, by the
laws of this here land."
