  I’d run my chance with Jim.
’Longside of some pious gentlemen
  That would n’t shook hands with him.

  And went for it thar and then;
And Christ ain’t a-going to be too hard
  On a man that died for men.

  And bringing him to his own,
Is a derned sight better business
  Than loafing around the throne.
