  • Stranger with a Badge

    Verse 1
    Stranger rode into town,
    A stern look on his face,
    Gave thought to his grim task,
    Sworn duty on his mind and dismounted.

    Verse 2
    Examined his two six guns,
    Moseyed to hotel bench,
    At noon stood and with care,
    Tied holster to his thigh and reflected.

    Verse 3
    In saloon spoke a name,
    Outlaw threw down his drink,
    Knew why stranger was there,
    Each drew down, guns blazing, unabated.

    Verse 4
    Fight was o’er in a blink,
    Outlaw dead on the floor,
    Stranger left the saloon,
    Went over to his horse and remounted.

    Verse 5
    Rode from town at full trot,
    Same way that he came in,
    Town knew why he had come,
    His tin badge told the truth, deputized.
