“The Stampede”


"When the hot sun smiles on the endless miles..." the cowboys seek water, and find themselves fighting with a "nester" for his well. They spare him only because of his pretty girl. When a storm and stampede start, Texas Red saves the girl.


There is no evidence that this piece (first published in _Wild West Weekly_) was ever a song, or that it ever entered tradition. - RBW
