These words she said to me,

Just thinkin' about that woman I loved,
Who runs away with another man.

My stack of gold dollars I wasted away,
And I lost about ninety-nine.

It wasn't very long till I seen him again,
He run away and left her behind;
And I laid him down with my old forty-four,
And the judge gave me ninety-nine.

And he give me ninety-nine;
I laid a man down with my big forty-four,
And the judge give me ninety-nine.

And the clerk he wrote it down;
