Fulton's Folly

Written By: Janet Snare

Fulton left his Maybelle in their year-old marriage bed
He rode at sunrise and didn't look back
A soldier's fortune filled his heart and head
Fulton’s folly
Fulton’s folly

Sixteen months and ten kills and Fulton got a medal
Back on her parent’s farm, Maybelle slept alone
There were many suitors, but Maybelle wouldn’t settle
Fulton’s folly
Fulton’s folly

Maybelle was twenty-one when she died one spring morning
That same morning, Fulton fought the Sioux
Children were at play when he struck them with no warning
Fulton’s folly
Fulton’s folly

Fulton washed his saber in the icy Powder River
Burned tepees smoldered like matchsticks on the bank
Ashes and snow and tears fell forever
Fulton’s folly
Fulton’s folly
