Thinkin of Mattie

"What do you think, smith? Your husband gonna come save you? The whore in men's trousers? Trade her life for yours? I'm gonna kill her real slow and painful like. " Boyd laughed to himself, and let the slack back out of the rope. "Few miles back to Silverado. How long you think you'll last?"

The more the man bad mouthed the woman he loved, the more Cody had hopes o’ seein her again. The man was just jealous he ain’t found someone like Mattie Hicks. It boosted Cody’s confidence. He began to sing.

“I struck the trail in seventy-nine,
The herd strung out behind me;
As I jogged along my mind ran back
For the gal I left behind me.
That sweet little gal, that true little gal,
The gal I left behind me!

If ever I get off the trail
And the Indians they don’t find me,
I’ll make my way straight back again
To the gal I left behind me.
That sweet little gal, that true little gal,
The gal I left behind me!”

The sound of a second horse and wagon caught his attention from the distance. If it was who he thought it was, things were going to get real interesting, real fast.

Cody was so busy singin an thinkin ‘bout Mattie, he hasn’t heard the wagon comin. He was jist attemptin ta irritate the man pullin him along wit’ a rope.
