"THE CHAP FROM BARKALEE"
A LEGEND OF POKER FLAT, WRITTEN BY A RESIDENT.
His clothes wuz new, o' the Frisco cut,
His shirt was new an' biled,
An' the way he jingled his coin around,
The fellers some'at riled.
So ole Bill Smith, a Merzouri man,
Wot lives way up on the Run,
He smiled out loud, an' all the crowd,
Woke up to see the fun.
