With hair like flames, Lucinda Jones
Struck out for the West
The widowed mother by herself
Deciding what is best

She fled from war of South and North
A war of Blue and Grey
Found another conflict there
The Texan-Comanche

Two invading forces meet
Innocents would pay
Homesteaders and Cherokee
Would find it hard to stay

The neighbors with the feather bed
Attacked out of the blue
“Blood and feathers everywhere”
That’s what war will do

The dragon mother settled in
The Devil could not scare
The matriarch with child in hand
The woman with red hair
