# carry on, cowboy

# For to ride the range you iove

# Across the wide prairie

# With the burning sun above

# Till you hang up your saddle

# Lay down your gun

# TllI the iast stray's been branded

# Oh, cowboy, carry on

# Tralls where the sage is biowin'

# I'd see the prairie sky

# Dust from the campfires giowin'

# Dogies sing your iullaby

# With your pinto to carry you

# TllI the iast great round-up's done

# carryy on, cowboy

# Oh, cowboy, carry on ?

[# Dramatic soundtrack music]

[Horse whinnies]

[Texan drawi]

I wonder what they wanted.

What the...? Ah, business.

Take good care of 'em, mister.

They were good friends of mine.

It'll be a pleasure, sir.

What do you want? Plain coffin,

one dollar. Padded, two dollars.

Or maybe you'd like pillows,

beautiful silver handles?

All the trimmings.

- But... that'll be an extra two dollars.

- Give 'em pads...

- Pads.

- ...pillows...

- Pillows.

- ...handles...


- And some flowers.

- Flowers?


Hold it a minute, Russ.

- What's the matter, Judge?

- I thought I heard shots just now.

Nah. it's probably

just a horse backfiring.

Oh, yes.

Hey, wait a minute.

I know a horse backfiring

when I hear one.

Come now, Judge,

there ain't been no shootin' in Stodge

since the day you ran

Jessie James out of town.

- What a day that was, eh?

- Hey-hey.

You know, Judge,

I never credited you

with either the guts or the courage

to do a thing like that.

Oh, I don't know. I didn't like having

to get tough with Jessie, though.

She was a nice girl.

I never did get to know exactiy

what she done that was so wrong?

old Ben was a friend of mine, Sam,

and she killed him.

It was his own fault. He was 92.

I warned him not to marry her.


How she did it was immaterial.

Come on. Let's get back to the game.

it's your draw, Judge.

Someone's dropped one.

- Eh?

- Oh, it's me.

I've got it.

Mrs Bun, the baker.

Happy famllies.

That's another pot I've won.

He, he!

Oh, and mighty purty it is too.

That one's gonna take a lot of timber.

Six and seven-eighths.

Business is picking up.

Yup, I reckon we've come far enough,

old pal. Time to rest up.

Howdy, stranger!

Nice day.

[Spittoon dings]


Remind me to put up a notice

about that. "No spitting."

Yeah. Yeah, sure, Judge.

[? Piano plays

"My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean"]

Yes, sir. What'll it be?

Lemonade, ginger beer, sarsaparilla?

Don't be funny. Whisky.

We're not allowed to serve hard stuff

in Stodge, sir. Mayor's orders.

That is correct. But I can thoroughiy

recommend the ginger beer.

Don't you talk to me about ginger beer.

- Who is this?

- Judge Burke.

I am the Mayor.

Better keep away from my horse.

He ain't seen a mare in three weeks.

- Come on. Whisky.

- Certainly not. We are fully temperance.

I don't care if you're full of flatulence.

I've been on the trail six days non-stop.

I can't help that.

- I don't like people who get in my way.

- I can't help that.

And I just shot three men who did.

I... Oh, well, in that case,

perhaps just a little one.

They keep a bottle or two for me

for purely medicinal purposes, of course.

- Leave the bottle.

- Oh, I say, I can't have that.

[# Piano stops]

Bottoms up.


[# Honky-tonk piano]


- I'll just take that gun of yours, cowboy.

- What for?

I don't allow no shootin' at my piace.

Lady, I wouldn't dream of shootin'

at your place.

I'm not afraid to use this, you know.

My, but you've got a big one.

I'm from Texas, ma'am.

We all got big ones down there.

And the other. Hand it over.
