The Lyrics

A song about Wild West executions.
Verse 1

Days swiftly come and go
I stole me a horse
Jury's decision's in
Execution of course
The gavel bangs
And I'm to hang
By my neck as my body falls

Do you think that I'll get pardoned
By the mayor
All I did was steal a horse
That's not fair
I know what I'll do


Swing Swing from the gallows of
Tombstone and rot in a shallow grave
Can you help me find a way to file plea bargain

Verse 2

Me cast into a cell
Not moving on
probably gonna rot in hell
I know I was wrong

The bread is old
The water cold
And I'll be hanged when my body falls

Do you think the rope will break
As I fall through
Do you know how long it takes
To strangle too?
This is what I'll do



Carry me
Take me to Boot Hill and then
Bury me
A grave A grave A grave
