lyrics

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun
But throw him through a wall, there's gonna be a brawl.
And tie that motherfucker down to the tracks.

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun.
There's no going back when you're tied to the tracks
Cuz the train only comes at high noon.

Ordering a drink he saw me put my revolver on the bar.
The barkeep ducked down after offering whisky by the jar.
I take a shot of whiskey, grabbed my gun and looks into his eyes.
A short pause before swearing on his demise.

He stabbed me in the hand, a bar fight broke out.
Fists were a'flyin' everywhere, I dropped my gun.
I was bloody and broken, but I will not give up.
Slamming my face on the piano made the music stop.

Laying in a pool of blood without a tear.
Within my eyes he still saw a glimpse of fear.
Tied a rope around my neck dragged me to the bridge.
I knew I was going to die as i saw the ridge.

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun
But through him through a wall, there's gonna be a brawl.
And tie that motherfucker down to the tracks.

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun.
There's no going back when you're tied to the tracks
Cuz the train only comes at high noon.

Ohhhhh no what have I done? This was my fault all along.
Why did I have to start a fight that I could not win.
I felt the rope tighten, as I was tied to the tracks.
I can hear the whistle blow foreshadowing that my life has finally come to an end.

The rumbling of the ties told me I would die soon.
Here comes the train it is now about high noon.
Counting down the last seconds of, my life.
If only I, could cut my throat with my pocket knife.

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun
But through him through a wall, there's gonna be a brawl.
And tie that motherfucker down to the tracks.

When you see him come, boy you better run.
He'll take you round for some real good fun.
There's no going back when you're tied to the tracks
Cuz the train only comes at high noon.
