John Wallace Crawford....also known as....Captain Jack, The Poet Scout Of The Black Hills, wrote the following ode to Wild Bill.


Under the sod in the land of gold
We have layed the fearless Bill.
We called him wild yet a little child
Could bend his iron will

Under the sod in Deadwood Gulch
You have laid his last remains
No more his manly form will hail
The red man on the plains

And while he sleeps beneath the sod
His murderer goes free
Released by a perjured gaming set,
Who'd murder you and me-

Whose coward hearts dare never meet
A brave man on the square
Well, Pard, they'll find a warmer clime
Than they ever found out there.

Crawford was a union veteren of the Civil War....prospector....chief scout for Gen Merritt and part of Buffalo Bills Wild West Show.
