Gunsmoke

Album: Hurry Sundown (1977)
  • Some will lose their nerve tonight
    And others lose their lives
    A flash of fire in the fight
    A cold look in my eyes
    Passing judgment in the street
    Where justice is revealed
    I deal with darkness ruthlessly
    I love the way it feels

    Hear the roaring of the gun
    Death before the fear
    Gunsmoke on the setting sun
    You know the end is near

    There's a shadow on my life
    It's colder than the night
    A chilling silence in the air
    A guilded stream of light
    Dancing madly from the barroom
    Where whiskey blinds my eyes
    Lady Luck is lonely now
    Her streak has been denied

    Hear the roaring of the gun
    Death before the fear
    Gunsmoke on the setting sun
    You know the end is near

    I can hear the painful cry
    That lets me know you're there
    You're trying hard to stop me when
    You know I just don't care
    Another moment on your own
    And I'm shot full of holes
    A blanket used to close you in
    Upon your restless soul

    But you hear the roaring of the gun
    Death before the fear
    Gunsmoke on the setting sun
    You know the end is near
    Know the end is near
