We're not at Dobbs yet.

- Mr. Davis...

- Yes, ma'am.

Why wouldn't you take us back to Largo?

If troubles go on,

your husband can pick you

up at the fort.

I'm not talking about my husband,

I'm talking about you.

You are running away from

something, aren't you?

You were running away

that night back at the ranch

when you tried to take

away one of our horses.


I'm obliged for your

concern, Mrs. Grey.

But it's none of my business, huh?

Some things are better left alone.

I see.

No, ma'am, you don't.

My husband,

you killed him.

What are you talking about?


I took this of a dead man.

After you shot him in the back.

That's you knew why

he wasn't coming home.

That's why you wouldn't

take us to Largo.

And that's why running away.

Gimme that!

Now listen to me!

Listen to me!

I had a posse on my tail,

they were even to hang me.

I traded coats with a dead man

who that was thrown off.

If it was your husband,

I am sorry.

But it was the only way I had.

You're lying, you killed him.

You killed.

Mr. Davis.

It's all right, I see him.

Who you know, Gar Davis.

Hello Clett, you're lost?

You ought to know me better than that,

I always know where I'm going.

Boy, you got yourself on some

lonesome ground, aren't you?

I like that though.

It quiets me down.

You're still killing, Clett?

I'm alive.

Are you?

Much as you are.

I've come though Largo when that

sheriff there bought a new horse.

He said he left him in some canyon

With a hole in his back.

That he said.

When I heard that

it kind of touched me.

And went to the saloon and

got me some drinks over it.

Grieving or celebrating?


That's yours?

The Comanches overrun her ranch

I'm taking her and the boy to Dobbs.

You are taking a long

way around, ain't you?

Not that I blame you,
