Francis Henry Maynard

[Francis H. Maynard] (December 16, 1853 – March 28, 1926 / Iowa City)

The Streets of Laredo

As I rode down by Tom Sherman's bar-room,
Tom Sherman's bar-room so early one day,
There I espied a handsome young ranger
All wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay.
'I see by your outfit that you are a ranger,'
The words that he said as I went riding by,
'Come sit down beside me, and hear my sad story,
I'm shot through the breast and I know I must die.
