A Steer Branded "Murder"

Gilliland feuded with Henry Harrison Powe
And one day they decided to go toe-to-toe
Powe went to Boot Hill
Cowboys say, "A clean kill"
And the steer with the brand tells the law what they know

A steer with the "Murder" brand
For years did wander the land
An odd Texas mystery
But true to its history
When a posse of Rangers killed Fine Gilliland
