Harmonica Player

YOu know when Harmonica brings Cheyenne down at the auction, and Cheyenne says "Judas was content with 4970 dollars less" and Harmonica says "They didn't have dollars back then."  Cheyennes next line I never understood until I saw the movie on Saturday at the Gene Autry museum and they had the subtitles on.  It's the line's delivery that always confused me.  He says "But sons of bitches.  Yeah."  When he says it, it just sounds like one long sentence, and I was lost.  But the subtitle made it make sense.  He was saying that while there were no dollars back then, there were indeed sons of bitches. 
I know, you guys probably all knew this, but this always made no sense to me.  Still catching things everytime I watch it.

Vinny - when I saw this at the theaters in 1969 (Arizona) Cheyenne's line "But sons of bitches, yeah" was NOT present.  Didn't see this bit or Harmonica getting up after being wounded at Cattle corner until the 1985 restoration and re-release.

When I saw the movie on TV the first time, there wasn't the part when Harmonica gets up.
When it was aired years later, and to my surprise there was this part.
