[train whistle sounds] [tense music] â™ª â™ª [gunshot] [shattering glass]
movies full free, [gunfire] put the gundown, john henry. goodbye, john henry. 20 years is a long time.
well, you’re a free man. hm. i guess i’ll neverget used to it. they’re brought inhere ramrod straight. arrogant, ready totackle the whole world. and they walk awaybroken-down old men. nowhere to go,nothing to do. and too wore out to doit, even if there was. giddy-up.
did you get the dynamite? two boxes. that ought to do it. [explosion] [whistles] hold it, hold it! [gunshots] [people shouting] missed him, darn it! come on!
captain, how many times ihave to tell you it wasn’t your fault? governor, you appointedme head of the parole board. because you are thebest man for the job. no sir i’m not. not anymore. i let my personal feelingsget in the way of the decision. i was the only one on theboard who favored a pardon for john henry lee,but i got him out.
then what does he do? six hours later he robs abank in del rio and runs off with 20,000 in gold! so you made a mistake. yeah, i sure did. 20 years ago. i should’ve shot himinstead of bringing him in. next time, i will. next time?
i got john henrylee out of prison. i can dang wellput him back in. if i don’t bury him. oren… i hate to say this. you’ve been one of the besttexas rangers to strap on a gun, but that wasa long time ago. aren’t you a little old togo running around chasing anoutlaw? well ain’t he a little oldto go running around robbingbanks?
if i know john henry, he’llswing south from del rio along the border andround up his old gang. like as not, he’ll pick upnitro jones, best powder man in the territory. been blowing up bank vaultssince he was knee high to a stick of dynamite. hands as solid as a rock. not a nerve in his body. and fargo parker,gunfighter.
dangerous as they come. cut his teethon a winchester. and kelly sutton,tin horn gambler. been thrown out of everyhonest card game in texas. talks too much and drinkstoo much, but he can handle it. and charlie lee,john henry’s brother. wagon driver, getaway man. there’s not a harness horseever lived that charlie couldn’t master.
he can turn a runawayteam around on a dime. wait up! and give you sevencents change. look out! [crashing sound] as soon as john henry getshis boys together, they’ll double back and head north. over the bend ofthe rio brazos. the bend in rio brazos?
you heard me. [grunting] i thought you were going tokind of stay away from that parts of texas. well you thought wrong. if i know captain hayes,he’s going to head straight for the governor’s officeand quit his job on the parole board. he thinks it’s his faultthat i got turned loose.
then he’s going to headout and round up his wholeoutfit. once he gets him, he’s goingto come busting right after us. be just like old times. he’ll probably havenash crawford with him. who? the only guy to ever beatme to the draw, fair and square. put a bullet inme right there. still got it. i was turning blue onewinter, and them prison doctors wanted tocut it out of there.
i said heck no. yeah, nash crawford’ssome kind of man. he gets on your trail, you’dbetter be ready to buy the farm, bull and all. touch that gunand i’ll kill you. right. now you try it. stand up tall. taller.

if you’d ask me… asque! george asque. gentlemangeorge asque. that’s the name i’vebeen trying to think of. captain hayes will bringhim along for sure. how come they callhim gentleman george? ’cause that’s what he is. a gentle man. his family was rich,back before the war.
they sent him to school. one of them fancy schoolsdown south where they teach him to eat with theright fork and talk soft. he come away from therewith more manners than he’sever used. gentlemen george asque. let’s fight! [upbeat music] telegraph forgentleman george! brazos!
[laughing] [serene music] hello oren. hello maggie. it’s been a long time. five years. seems like more. i know. i’m proud of you, oren.
standing up for johnhenry the way you did. can i see him? what happened? didn’t his pardoncome through? it came through. and soon as he was out, herobbed a bank in del rio. and you’re going after him. first thing in the morning. always the lawman.
that’s wrongand you know it. this is becauseof me, isn’t it? you thought if i knew johnhenry was out, i’d come running. you’re here. because you sent for me. i just wanted you to make upyour mind once and for good. all these years… you’re still jealousof john henry. all these years.
i married you. because he was locked up. this time you’re goingto see he stays that way. all i know is… i want you back, maggie. you haven’t changedone bit, oren hayes. not one bit. you feel that there bank indel rio is going to put up a reward for us?
probably. well, don’t you think we’rekind of taking a chance sitting out here in the openand building a big fire? nah. what are you talking about? there’s a lot of goldin that there wagon. it’s gonna stay there. not if another of ’em cometo chasing after and jump us. they won’t.
but… charlie, them bankers in delrio are just like they areeverywhere else. let them be a little extracareful about putting out money. they’ll post a reward, but itain’t going to amount tonothing. it’s good business, butit don’t go for raising no hellacious big posse. yeah, i sure gottahand it to you. you sure dothink things out. well, i didn’t always,and i paid for it too.
20 years. but that ain’t gonnahappen no more. it ain’t? charlie, a man’s gottahave a goal in this life. something to keep him going. and i got mine. i want to rob a texas train. you almost got it done once. yeah, but captain hayesand his boys stopped me.
but they won’t this time. you mean you gonna try torun up that train again? ain’t gonna try,charlie, i’m gonna do it. that sunday run from waco. i’ve had a lot of time tothink about what went wrong the last time. laying up there in prison,i went over it in my mind a hundred thousandtimes or more. we shouldn’t have goton that train in waco.
we should’ve waited til thebend of the brazos, and when the train slowed down forthe curve, we could’ve jumped on it rightthere on the fly. that’s what we’lldo this time. on the fly? we’ll be all over themexpress guard before they know what hits ’em. now once we get on board, iwant you to bring this wagon full bore upalongside the train.
now there’ll be a clearingthere by the river, so you’ll have room to horsethat rig right on up next to the express car. but don’t come in too quick. kind of lay back andwait for the explosion. explosion? i’ll tell nitro to use anextra stick of dynamite on that safe, so when itblows, the whole side of the express car will come out.
we’ll get the gold, throwit in the wagon, jump on the back and take off like ascalded dog in the hills. we’ll be long gone beforethey know what happened. john henry, all thatrunning and the jumping? you don’t thinkyou’re up to it, huh? well, you will be. when you hear that traincoming around the bend and you hear that whistleblowing, you’ll be like an old fire horsehearing the bell.
you won’t be able to holdyou back, promise you that. we’ll make fools out ofcaptain hayes and his boys, just like they did us. and unless i miss my guess,they’ll be waiting for us at the junction just beyondthe bend in the river. just like they was before. but we’ll be in and out beforethey know what happened. won’t they catch up with us? but what if they do?
you ever hear tell the storyabout them lions over in africa? lions? when they start getting old,something inside of them tells ’em they ain’t gotlong to live and they start roaming around,looking for a fight. not just any fight,but a good one. one they wouldn’t mind toomuch not walking away from. and if captain hayes andhis boys catch up to us out here, that’s the kind offight it’s going to be.
goodnight all. this duel of his couldget us all killed! man can’t live forever. not around johnhenry, he can’t. okay, you’re first nitro. now! next. that ain’t fair, john henry. i can hit them bottleswith a scattergun!
you couldn’t hit a bullin the butt with a banjo! he’s right, charlie. use yourhandgun. i don’t got one! here, use mine. be careful. it’s got a hairtrigger. alright, you ready? ready. fire at will. i told you it hada hair trigger!
you almost hit john henry! be the firstthing he ever hit. i don’t claim tobe no gunfighter! having you along is likelosing two good men. oh yeah? yeah! i can’t. i was aiming ata rattlesnake. drink us up anothertarget, sutton.
we’ve got work to do. yes sir. nash? nash crawford. george asque, you old goat. i thought i recognizedthat jackass. gang way, i’mcoming through. one to side or a leg off! jason?
ow! you alright jason? that you nash crawford? yeah, and gentlemangeorge asque. good to see you, jason. well, you too. if i could find my glasses. there. oh yeah.
well here they are. oh. thank… thank you nash. i’m nash. what are you doing ridingthat fool contraption anyway? well, it’s the only way icould make the bend in the river short of walking. looks downrightdangerous to me. well, it is if you don’tget the hang of it. i ain’t got the hangof it, but i will!
if you don’t breakyour fool neck first. if you want to crawl ondouble with me, it’s okay jason. still riding that jackass? everywhere i go. yeah, well i’ll take mychances with this dang thing. well, it’s your wagon. well let’s not standaround talking all day. the captain’s waiting for us atthe overland stage station. i’d say he waitedlong enough.
alright, let’s… let’s mount up! now just a damn minute! since when you givingorders george asque? i only… stepped on my rank,that’s what you only! and i’m still sergeant inthis here outfit, and if there’s any orders to be given,i’m the one doing the giving. do you understand?
well do you? i guess so. i guess so what? i guess so, sergeant. yeah, that’s more like it. mount up! that’s them alright. why don’t we jump themnow and get it over? we jump them when i say so.
not until. couldn’t be that you’re afraidof them old men down there? could it? them old men down there gotthat way by staying alive. that’s more than you’regoing to do if you don’t stop crossing me. we’re going to end upkilling each other, i say it ain’t worth it. i say we ought toturn and ride away.
for 20,000 in gold? bank of del rio’s onlyputting up $1,000. to bring it back. but we ain’t gonna do that. sure ain’t. [thunder crashing] here’s the bendof the rio brazos. shh! unless i missed my guess,john henry and his boys
won’t board the sunday runat waco like he did last time. he’ll jump the trainhere, catch it on the fly. well damn it, we’d betternot be waiting downtrack at the junction! we won’t be, sergeant. what i can’t figure outis why ain’t john henry in prison where he belongs? ’cause i got him out. you g…
on good behavior. good behavior? john henry? and he went straight to abank in del rio and robbed it. why would he do that? because he wanted to makesure i’d come after him. but that don’t make a wholelot of sense, captain. does to him. the only time john henry wasever made a fool of was when
he tried to robthat texas train. he wants to get even. sounds to me like hewants to get caught. that ain’t as easy asit sounds, sergeant. he’s had a lot of yearsto figure out what he did wrong. he won’t make thesame mistakes again. and neither will i, if iever get my hands on him. any questions? alright, we move out firstthing in the morning.
jason, you’ll ride scout. ‘night gents. i don’t like it. what? the captain. he’s taking the wholething too personal. him and john henryused to be friends. they were in the wartogether, weren’t they? same outfit.
when the fight was over, thecaptain joined the rangers, john henry he took torobbing yankee banks. claimed he was getting evenwith them for winning the war. that happened to me once. taking things topersonal, i mean. i was tracking a man thatshot a shot a sheriff. good friend of mine,that sheriff was too. i was so blind mad icouldn’t see the trail and he got away.
[laughs]well john henry won’t. well just like you said,nash, i think he’s out and out asking to get caught. why else would he make surehe brought the law along to a train robbing, hm? you heard the captain,he’s doing it to get even! no he ain’t. i think he’s, he’s justspoiling for a good old-fashioned fight!
george is right. lead’s going to fly. i can feel it in my bones. if i should catch one, boys,promise me you’ll bury me where i fall. and i’ll throw that damnbicycle in right on top of you. you didn’t take yournap today, did you nash? no. but you’re going to take yoursif you’d just step outside.
you wouldn’t hit a manwearing glasses would you? just as hard as i can! now hold it boys, hold it. don’t go wasting onfighting on each other. before long, we’re goingto have all we can handle. slow down! now, now! oh! oh! ho!
well if you can’t jump awagon on the run, how do you expect to catch a train? we’re just out of practiceis all, john henry. again? can’t we take a rest? we’ll be wore out beforethe train gets here! same thing goes forthese horses, john henry. they ain’t got much leftin them, and they could use some water.
well, take them over thereby the bend of the river beyond that rise, and getback on top of the hill as quick as you can. i put my ears to redwhen i get down there. well you won’t hear nothing. that train don’t leavewaco til ten o’clock. it’ll be two hoursbefore it gets here. now get going! hya!
oh, i sure hope we don’tlet you down, john henry. you’ll be alright. where’s nitro? last time i seen him, heborrowded a match and took off with a stickof dynamite! which way did he go? that way. nitro! heh, fire in the hole.
are you alright? oh, just got the windknocked out of me. i thought i’d better try astick or two, uh, just make sure i haven’tlost my touch. i ain’t as good asi was, john henry. well you just cut yourfuse a little short. that’s all. eh, no, heh. i froze. and if i do that whenwe jump the train…
you won’t. but what if i do? nitro, ain’t none of usas young as we used to be. not nearly. we’re professionals, andthat’s what counts when the chips are down. that’s what separatesthe men from the boys. even the old men. i hope so.
i know so. now let me run this downfor you one more time. okay. that’s the hill over there. here’s the river. the bin in the river. there’s the tracks, andthere’s the clearing. and we’ll stay up on top ofthe hill until we can see that train comingfrom a long way off.
and when he gets righthere, we’ll take off. and we’ll be coming down offof that hill, so we should be going fast enough tocatch him without any trouble. john henry! john henry! woah! what’s wrong? the train! it’s coming?
no, it ain’t going to! the railroad toreup the tracks! are you sure? that’s all there is left. the bend in therio’s gone too! dried up! [somber music] if that ain’t the darnedesttrick time ever played on a man, i ain’t never heard it.
you say the river’s dry? as a bone. well that’s a good thing. i’d probably godrown myself. well, that justgoes to prove it. there ain’t no foollike an old fool. i spent 20 years up therein that prison, planning day and night, living onvengeance, hate and pride, and it’s all come downto one rusty spike.
it’s a hell of a wayto rob a railroad. what’re we going todo now, john henry. well, one thing we can do,we can go back to del rio. del rio? and take that gold back. i ain’t got nomore use for it. we do. [guns cocking] tore up the tracks?
ten years ago. well why didn’t you say so? i just remembered it. look! jason, you alright? wagon headed south. four outriders. three empty horses. hey, jason, i take backeverything i ever said
against you. you’re as good a scoutas you ever were. being able to hear all thatby just putting your ear on the ground. i didn’t hear anything. they just ran over me. that’s an old indian joke. actually, i seen them fromup on the ridge there. then what are you doingflat on the ground?
i fell off my bicycle. [energetic music] you boys are makinga mistake, you know. del rio’s that way. four days. ain’t going to del rio. you’re gonna keep thegold for yourself? well, you’re smarterthan you look, old man. by the way, got a name?
i got three of them. john henry lee. what’s yours? cotton. just cotton. well, just cotton, that’snitro jones, fargo parker, kelly sutton andmy brother charlie. john young, billybates, john brown. now we know each other.
not for long. if they gonna keep yourgold, how come they don’t just take it and ride off? they want to make itlook like we stole it. how they gonna do that? make sure we ain’t around towitness against them, for onething. meaning it’ll get kindof hard to stay alive? them too. [whimsical music]
i’m out. it’s 15 to you. i’ll keep you on it. first hand over wins. 30 miles of railroad. three 10s beatsmy two pairs. don’t you ever lose, cotton? never. â™ª mama can i comeout and play â™ª

just like oldtimes, ain’t it? us chasing after john henry. i sure miss ’em. the old times, i mean. never was a dull day. that’s the troublewhen you tame a land. all the fun goes out of it. first thing you know, thesettlers come in and they build a town, and then thebankers and lawyers move in
and take it away from them. i guess that’sprogress, jason. well, they can have it. uh… speaking of progress, has therebeen any between you and maggie? well it just ain’t right the twoof you not being together. you know that preacher downin san anton’ said "’til death do you part" and yousure as hell ain’t dead. did you ever want anythingso bad, you did all the
wrong things to get it? oh, talking about women, no. i’ve had a hankering for afew, but they never did getserious. my being ugly helped a lot. there was that nearsightedgal down in sonora town. that was the one that wentaround telling everybody how much she loved you. everybody, that is,except her husband. that’s the one!
and as i remember, he wasthat close to doing you with a shotgun. taught me a lesson: alwayscheck the brand, make sure you ain’t drivinganother man’s stock. amen. well captain, igotta get some rest. i’ve got a big day tomorrow. gotta tighten my handlebars. alright jason.
goodnight. goodnight, captain. just one stop atthe overland line. what do you think? could use supplies. i’m getting tiredof cowboy coffee. what about them? they stay here. billy, you and john brownkeep an eye on them.
come with me. i’d really like to help youboys out, but i just barely got enough suppliesaround here for myself. overland callsthis a swing stop. i don’t know whatthe hell to call it. you see anyhorses out there? you see anything thatlooks like a team change? they hit me like thistwo, three times a month. who’s they?
breeds, comanche… could be the sunday schoolteacher for all i know. and what horses they don’tsteal, they scatter up on the hills there. and how’s a man supposed togather animals and watch his station all atthe same time? now just yesterday, theeastbound came through here. i couldn’t makea team change. didn’t have any stock!
for two cents, i throw thekeys in the water bucket and ride out of here. on what? heh, well, walk out. say, listen. are you boyslooking for a job? i could use a gunor two around here. no sir, we’re justpassing through. well, like i said, i’dlike to help you out.
just make yourselfat home there. i gotta go out and roundup some stock for the westbound. well… he said makeyourself at home. no beans. what are you staring at? a pretty girl. i don’t know her name. you go on aboutyour business.
i got work to do. you’re too pretty for work. that’s for fat women. and bald-headed men. that leaves the rest of usto have fun with each other. clara? that goes with a redhead. bertha? no, that goes with a cow.
kitty? it’s gotta be that. kitty. meg. should’ve known. leggy meg. well you’re asfresh as paint. you’ll dream about that. and so will i.
i’ll dream about it so much. i’ll be back. keep going! [whistles] giddy up! stay out the night in there. hey sonny. people don’t generallycall me "sonny." leastways not twice. i teach ’em better.
is that so? yeah, that’s so. is there something thatyou’d like to say now that i’ve reminded youof your manners? can i borrow a match? if it ain’t injuns stealingmy horses, it’s some no-good stealing my canned goods! you said therewere two of them? how old?
20 or so. them in the wagon weren’t. there was five old men. i saw them whenthey rode off. looks like john henrybrought along some young guns. which way were they headed? south. much obliged. you mind my asking whyyou’re looking for them?
they stole from abank in del rio. well, at least i ain’t the onlyone around here getting robbed. good luck to you! thank you. it’s a shame you boys don’tknow more about your trade than you do. you’d went out and foundyour old bank to rob. that way, you wouldn’tbe in so much trouble. seems to me that you’rethe ones in trouble.
well, if you can figureout a way to do it we are. do what? kill us. you think we’d do that? well you don’thave a choice. thing about it is, whenyou do get rid of us you’ve gotta make sure it lookslike the gold gets lost too, or else they’ll find usdead, the gold gone, and they’ll comeright after you.
this time they won’t be comingafter you for stealing. this time they’ll becoming at you for killing. man don’t know the ropes inthis business, he’s liable to wind up with onearound his neck. well what would you say if itold you i already got that worked out? i’d have to doubt it. ever since you guys jumpedus back there, i’ve been wracking my brain trying tofigure out what i would do
about it if the situationwere turned around. i haven’t come upwith anything yet. well, that’s what happenswhen a man gets a long way down the road. his mind don’t workas good as it used to. some ways it don’t. some ways it does. take right now for instance. i can tell you whatyou boys are thinking.
you’re thinking you wish youhad another way out of this. because deep down, you knowyou’re gonna have to spend the rest of your life knowingthat you killed five men. five old men. makes a difference. you mean kind of likeputting us out of our misery like the no-goodsthat we are? well, you couldsay that, yeah. course you gottaget it done first.
that might not be so easy. well, you said that like youwere planning on stopping us. what would you say if i toldyou that i already had that figured out? figured you would. your hide. seems to me we should’vecaught up with the captain and george right now. we’ll be lucky to catch upon the wall, thanks to you.
wasn’t my faulti had a flat! you’ll get more than thatif the captain runs into trouble and we ain’tthere to help him. hold it? what are you doing? putting on my nightwatchman glasses. i think i see something. [chuckling] just as i thought.
there’s a town up ahead. that town up ahead has beenthere for the last half hour. it has? jason fitch, you are theworst tracker i ever did see. i mean, you don’t heargood, you’ve got no sense of direction, you’reblind as a bat. it wouldn’t surprise me ifyou hang upside down when you sleep! want me to getdown and walk?
no i don’t want youto get down and walk. you’ll get lost. hold on. you don’t suppose john henrygot himself caught now, do you? huh. could be. hello, the saloon. this is captainhayes, texas rangers. [glass shattering]
how many of them are there? only saw two. gotta be more than that. those boys are kindof touchy, ain’t they? captain, what’s going on? sounds like youstarted a war! we did. but we don’t knowwhich side we’re on. it ain’t how many thatyou’re up against you gotta
worry about, you know. it’s who they are. that’s captain hayesand his boys out there. boys? they look like acouple old goats to me. old or no, you’ve got yourwork cut out for you if you’re planning on gettingsafe away with that gold. shut up! why don’t you just take thereward money and let it go
at that? look old man, i set out tospend that gold and that’s what i full intend to do. what a man intends and what hedoes is sometimes different. what a man intends andwhat he does is sometimes i intended to roba texas train. for 20 years i intendedthat, and i didn’t get it done. and this… this dynamite.
that’s another thingi intended to do. is to blow you boys up. but i didn’t. well, i got to thinking. it ain’t right. you’re young and you’ve gotyour whole life in front of you. if you’re trying to get onmy good side, forget it. i don’t have one. all i’m saying is you’vegot to learn to put up with
life’s disappointments. i know it’s hard, but you’vegot to learn to do it. quit preaching. why don’t you just toss methat stick, nice and gentle? why don’t youcome and get it? you’re not afraid ofan old man, are you? ‘course, i don’tblame you if you are. it’s like you said: a mangets on down the road, sometimes his mind don’twork as good as it used to.
you make a wrong move, i’mliable to panic, throw this stick of dynamitein the stove here. you’re bluffing. there’s one way to find out. i think he means it, cotton. i know i mean it. you see, i don’t havea good side either. now why don’t you boys throwyour winchesters down over there and get out of thedoor, and me and my friends
will walk on out of here. suit yourself. hold it! do like he says. well if you don’t mind, we’lljust leave the gold over there. leave it? yeah, that way i know youboys’ll be here for the fight. the fight? we’ll leave your gunsin the wagon out there.
that way it will be fair. you mean you wantto have a shootout? that’s kind of oldfashioned, ain’t it? well it depends onhow you look at it. well, the way i look on itis you got the drop on us. why don’t you takethe gold and go? if we do that, you’ll justcome after us and jump us again. this way it’ll all beover, once and for good. what’s good aboutgetting killed?
i don’t plan to. no? well that’s what’s going tohappen, you and these old men walk out against us. well then you ain’t gotnothing to worry about, do you? except for those who’llbe coming after you. kind of a high price to payto get us to the end of a rope. we ain’t paid it yet. should warn you, it’llprobably be hard to keep
captain hayes andhis boys out of this. there’s nothing they likebetter than a good fight. it ain’t every day theyget to be on your side. well, i hadn’tthought about that. it could be a problem. well you’d betterwork it out. you’re going to need allthe help you can get. oh, by the way. if it’s alright, we’ll justwait til morning to leave
your guns in the wagon. me and the boys, we don’t seetoo good in the dark anymore. come tomorrow, youwon’t see at all. we’ll see. i don’t care if you swearup and down on a stack ofbibles, i trusted you once, iain’t gonna do it again. i don’t blame you, but i’mtelling you the truth this time. we’s gonna take thatgold back to del rio. charlie, charlie’lltell you.
you know charlie don’t lie. all i know is you ain’tgoing to cross me again. i’m going to see to it theyput you back in that cell and throw away the key! and let those four no-goodsover there go free? they haven’t done anything. they threw down on you. they’re justtrigger-happy, that’s all. they want the goldfor themselves.
they were going to kill usto get it, and they’ll do the same thing to you ifyou give them a chance. well they ain’t gonnaget that chance. we’re moving outof here, now. and give them the 20,000? well, you gave it to ’em! and i can get it back, butthat ain’t gonna change nothing. one way or another, we’vegotta fight them boys over there, and if we head outto del rio, they’ll have us
just where they want us. they haven’t got any guns! they can get guns. they’ve got four days. he’s right, captain. he’s never beenright in his life! well i am now, and if youwasn’t too bull headed to admit it, all you want to dois send me back to prison! let me tell you something,if the boys catch us in the
open out there, more thanyour pride is going to get hurt. we’re headingout for del rio. captain… we’re going to do it my way. when’s the last time youwalked out against a man in a gunfight, john henry? it was against nashhere, wasn’t it? and he knocked you down. he’s good.
not anymore he’s not. and that goes for all of us. it’s a little late to startfeeling sorry for ourselves, don’t you think? it’s a little latefor a lot of things. and standing up to those boys inthe street is one of them. we wouldn’t have a chance. that’s exactly what wewould have, captain. go out in a blaze ofglory, is that it?
why not? it ain’t every day a mangets to die doing what he does. you could be wrongabout us, captain. when push comes to shove, wejust might be able to take those boys. i always was better atgunfighting than running. come on captain,what do you say? they’re awful young. and every one of them wouldshoot a man just to see himfall.
outlawing ain’twhat it used to be. it never was, john henry. sergeant. yes sir? we’ll be stayingout the night. sure don’t like this. folks brought me up torespect old people, not go killing them. you think i like itany better than you do?
well no, but… you want to go towork, do you billy? yeah, make an honest living? i don’t think i could do that. i cowboyed some. where’d that get you? you work yourself to deathfor somebody else, they’ll likely have to take up acollection to bury you. guess you’re right.
i still don’t like it. never killed anold man before. first time for everything. it don’t bother you? well, you were the onewho wanted to jump them. get it over with. yeah i wish we had. what’s thatsupposed to mean? would’ve been easier.
you know, if i didn’tknow you any better… you don’t evenknow me at all! look, i warned youabout crossing me. i’m not crossing you. i’m just saying… you feel sorry for thoseold men over there? let me tell you something. they don’t feelsorry for you. not onedamn bit.
yeah? how come john henry didn’t blowus up when he had the chance? because he’d havegone up with us. that’s why. yeah, i didn’tthink of thatcotton. yeah, well think about it. like he said, we’ve got ourwhole lives ahead of us. they don’t evenhave tomorrow.
i ain’t never killedanybody young before. you ain’t neverkilled anybody before. i wounded thatdeputy in sweetwater. aw, you hit him in the headwith a stick of dynamite. it got the job done. not this time it won’t. yeah, it’s getting bright. i’m going to miss the coffeemore than anything else. coffee?
mm. coffee and pretty girls. well what aboutme and nash here? ain’t you gonna miss us? no, he ain’t gonna miss us,cause we ain’t gonna die. you’re right. i ain’t ready tocash in my chips. come to think of it,i ain’t even got any. makes you think, don’t it?
this may be the very last day weever see each other again. well, if you think i’m goingto walk out in that street and shake hands while themboys open up on us, you got another thing coming! the trouble is, jason,you’re getting sentimental in your old age! i guess you’reright about that. hey jase, i’m sorryi yelled at you. it’s alright.
no it ain’t. i’ve been jumping all overyou lately for no reason at all. you’ve got a reason. i just ain’t anygood anymore. who says? you are the best scout thatever lived, jason fitch. there ain’t a tracker aroundwho can hold a candle to you. and i’ll whip the manthat says there is. yeah, and i’ll help him!
you mean that? you calling me a liar? [chuckles] i’d say it’s time to puton my gunfighting glasses. i just wanted to tell youthat no matter how all this turns out, i’m glad to bewalking down the same side of the street with you. i never should’ve letyou talk me into this. we’ll be alright.
yeah, well what about them? what if once we get outthere, they turn and run? that’d shame an old manwho don’t have much left. that’s why i didn’t want youto go out the back door last night. well at least they’dhave had a chance. depends on howyou look at it. john henry. the night before i leftto come after you…
maggie came back. maggie? she’d heard about yourpardon, wanted to see you. how is she? hasn’t changed. what is it about thatwoman that haunts a man so? i thought when they closedthat cell door behind me, i’d stop thinking about her. that it’d pass.
but all thatpassed was years. and then when you two gotmarried, i thought it’d be over. but then, out here, someof the guys sitting around talking about the galsthey’d left behind, and there it was again,hurting just like before. seems like women always wantthings that are bad for them, and i was surethat for maggie. she didn’t think so. still doesn’t.
did she tell you that? some things don’thave to be said. well here’s one that does. you may be one hell of alawman, but you don’t know squat about women. sure, she had a crush on me. why wouldn’t she? you was dull andi was colorful. now wait a minute!
but that’s all it was. a crush. deep down inside, it wasyou she really loved. why do you think iwalked away like that? why do you think i’ve beenpining for her for all these years? you’re jealous and you’restubborn and you’re bullheaded, oren hayes. you always have been,and you always will be.
now if you don’t mind,i don’t have time for a lover’s quarrel. i’ve got one of myown to worry about. [horses whinnying] it’s just likeyou said, cotton. these old men got thatway from staying alive. howdy. our horses could usesome water, young lady. help yourself.
water up. i’m back. we’ll be in delrio before dark. nash, go ahead and ask him. something wrong, sergeant? well, captain, george, jasonand me we’ve been talking. and uh, well we thought uh,if we didn’t take john henry and his boys into del rio,there’d be no reason for anybody to know…
he took the gold. yeah, and even if they did,heh, they’d be so happy to get it back that they’d uh,they’d probably drop thecharges. yeah, especially if you told’em he was fixing to ride on in to del rio and… turn the gold in. you believe that? well i don’t. hey!
stage coming. eastbound, headedfor del rio. woah, woah, ho! [sentimental music] maggie. i mean, look at you. you haven’t changedone damn bit. a lot of years have gone by. you sure can’t tellit by looking at you.
i’m not sure i believeyou, john henry. well, you’re not theonly one around here. i was getting ready to domaybe the first honest thing in my life. i was going to take some stolegold back to where i got it. and that knotheaded husbandof yours over there wouldn’t believe me. there’s another thinghe won’t believe. we talked about that.
i told him he was wrong. dead wrong. is he? has to be. it’s a shame, isn’t it? crying shame. well what the hell. seems we’re allgoing to del rio. we’ll have a party.
a going away party. john henry… i’ll never forget you. well, that’s alla man can ask. they say canada’s awfulpretty this time of year. canada? don’t ask me why, but i’mgoing to talk up for you one more time. but let me tell yousomething: if you ever cross
me again… you’ve got my word on it. and you got mine. now get going,you old buzzard! think john henry can stayout of trouble, captain? [train whistle blowing] a texas train. get up in there!
