Buck's Exit

Play the Song:Download the Plug-in:


From the chapter "The Snake-Stick Man." Buck had been jailed for bootlegging. "Buck cut such a dash when they arrested him, one time, in our town, that they penned him alone in the inner cage of the jail. At night he wrenched off a steel brace from his cot, with which he pried off a hinge and so joined the other prisoners. With their help, using the brace for a tool, he dug a hole through the brick wall. Then it was easy to let himself down with knotted blankets. Exit Buck."
