Riding into town rancher Hank Lawrence and his foreman Bert Ford are fired at from a distance by outlaws "Knuckles," "Bugsy" and Two-Horn." Outriding the gunmen, the two men suspect that they were rustlers. Meanwhile, Eddie Dean, "Soapy" Jones, Waco and four singing cowhands deliver a herd of cattle to the Lawrence ranch and meet Hank's sister Terry who tells them that her brother and the foreman are in town. They meet at a restaurant in town and a striking resemblance between Waco and Bert Ford is noted. Hank tells Eddie about his problem with rustlers and the attempt to ambush them. Eddie agrees to help his old friend and the first step in his plan is for Waco---more than handy with his guns--- to assume the identity of the foreman.
