You have to be famous to be on a woman's coin ... (Sage Sweetwater)
In the willows by the creek, she laid a bullet in his groin, for assaulting her and stealing her whiskey and Sacajawea dollar coin.
"Have you ever tried to tame a wild woman?" she asked him. "May seem yours for awhile, then one day ... that is the way of wild things."
"They'll be coming for you one day, Lavender Outlaw."
"Do you ever feel like going away?" she asks, his eyes filled with terror, as she moved the gun down.
Before he could pray, the bullet hit his groin, she tossed the Sacajawea dollar coin for a souvenir on his cold unrecognizable.
Soon, the Lavender Law Posse would be crossing the creek and take her away to that place, for she was Wanted Dead or Alive, she bathed him off in the creek with her Cowgirl's Lavender Rose Soap, then rode to the beehive, put it in the Lavender Rose Soap bag, and tossed it behind her to stop the Posse.
She left her horse to drink,
with a few minutes to think,
then rode off never to be seen.
One afternoon, the saloon keeper said he found a lavender coin stamped Lavender Outlaw on a fifty-gallon whiskey keg.
You have to be famous to have made it on a woman's coin.
Wanted Dead or Alive ...
