When I went to Denver in the USA a few years ago I visited the Buffalo Bill museum at Lookout mountain and I was very surprised to discover that William Cody had visited Torquay with his Wild West show. When I started writing my songs about Torbay earlier this year I had forgotten about Buffalo Bill's visit until I saw some information about it at Torre Abbey. For a few weeks since then I have wanted to write about his show visiting Torquay so here are the lyrics for my latest song.


Buffalo Bill in Torquay

His wild west show we will see

William Cody his real name

A living legend of great acclaim


In the year 1904

He's not been here before

To the Newton Road we must go

For great excitement at his show


Buffalo Bill in Torquay

His wild west show we will see

Entertainment on a grand scale

To excite you he will not fail


Riders from many a nation

Bringing great acclamation

Colonel Custer's last stand

With Buffalo Bill in command


A thrilling and daring bicycle feat

Wild west stars that you can meet

Sideshows and staged races

At this pageant excited faces


Buffalo Bill in Torquay

His wild west show we will see

William Cody his real name

A living legend of great acclaim


In the year 1904

He's not been here before

Of great excitement I have been told

Tickets for his show to be sold


Buffalo Bill informed the press

His liking of Torquay he would express

He loved the view from Daddyhole Plain

His delight for it he could not contain
