Inscription.  

His hot brand number was 018
But he was called Ole Cowtown,
Many a bullrider put a rope on him
And most every time they hit the ground.

Over 350 times they nodded their heads
But only 5 made the judges book,
Ole Cowtown not only would toss them off
But his reputation said he would also book.

Eighteen hundred pounds of grey brindle brahma
Bennie Beutler got him as a four year old,
From Howard and Grant Harris of Cowtown Rodeo
He's one they wished they'd never sold.

Alot of good bulls have come and gone
That have caused many a bullrider to frown,
Here lies one of the most feared that ever was
He was branded 018 - Cowtown.
