Lady & the Six-Gun
Lady & the Six-Gun

I was thinkin?, In the mornin?,
I?d saddle up and ride away from this old town
I ain?t fakin?, all I?m takin?, is my pony with my six-gum by my side.
But there?s a woman, askin? questions Got no answers, I can mention.
Just the kind that make a lady wanna cry.
Time to go now, hit the road now, with my six-gun, not a lady by my side.

She says she want to settle down, buy a spread outside of town
But you know a cowboy?s home is on the range.
Hitch it up now, I just can?t stop now,
I?m on my pony, with my six-gun by my side

I told her that I had to go, she said she just don?t think so
But I told her you can?t tie a cowboy down.
Hear my say now, I?m on my way now, the my six-gun not a lady, by my side.

And so I?m ridin?, through Stone Canyon, when a lasso brings my pony to the ground.
Guess I?ll stay now, what can I say now ... that my lady?s got my six-gun by her side.
You know my lady?s, got my six-gun. . . by her side.

(Can?t believe it! Wonder if anything like this ever happened to The Duke?
Girl sure can rope. . . got me from clear up on that ridge
Life ain?t never gonna be the same . . .)
