This cowboy poem was written for my friend, Amanda Blake, who the world knew better as ‘Miss Kitty Russell’ from the TV series, ‘Gunsmoke.’ She used to come to the local casino in Sparks, Nevada, where I worked, to hold seminars and workshops for up and coming actors and actresses.

She passed away in Sacramento, California in August 1989, at the young age of 60, and before I could give this to her.  Amanda was a class act, a good friend and I miss her dearly.

There was a lady in Dodge City,
Known as the red-head, Miss Kitty.
She had the hots for Matt Dillon,
But the man never seemed willin’.
He never took notice — or did he?
