  • The man from Laramie
    He was a man with a peaceful turn of mind
    He was kind of sociable and friendly
    Friendly as any man could be
    But you never saw a man out-draw
    The man from Laramie

    The man from Laramie
    He was a man with a warm and gentle heart
    But when they'd start the arguing and fightin'
    Frightenin' and lightning fast was he
    There was no coyote who could outshoot
    The man from Laramie

    He had a flair for ladies
    The ladies loved his air of mystery

    The west will never see
    A man with so many notches on his gun
    Everyone admired the fearless stranger
    Danger was this man's specialty
    So they never bossed or double crossed
    The man from Laramie

    He had a flair for ladies
    Now the ladies loved his air of mystery

    The west will never see
    A man with so many notches on his gun
    Everyone admired the fearless stranger
    Danger was this man's specialty
    So they never bossed or double crossed
