"Lonesome Gunfighter"


"Lonesome Gunfighter"



He rode into Waco
On a big fat cow
He wanted to be a gunfighter
But he didn't know how


He saw a saloon
They both walked in
Said give my mount some hay
And I'll have some gin


He said I guess you can see
The way I'm dressed
I'm a bad gunfighter
Just like the rest


As most gunfighters were
He was dressed in black
Except the pink boots
And he wouldn't take them back


He thought if he talked tough
Everyone would be full of fear
Until the bartender Said
Take your cow and get out of here


He was a gunfighter
This made him see red
It was then he realized
He'd left his gun by the bed

He got on his cow
And started to leave
As he passed the bartender
He spit on his sleeve


He told the bartender
Be glad I don't have a gun
After I learn how to shoot it
You'll be on the run


Went home and got his gun
Was going to learn how to shoot
He took one shot
And hit himself in the boot


After He shot himself
He said that's it
I'm the only gunfighter
I ever hit.
