  • A man appeared before Wells Fargo
    Wells Fargo's stage driver man
    Wearing long white linen
    And a dust flour sack over his head

    Pointed a double barreled shotgun
    At the driver and forced him to halt
    Please throw down the box sir
    And madame please I don't need your money or pearls

    They call him Black Bart P08
    The highway bandit poetry man
    Leaving his poem, disappeared
    Like a ghost on his own, all on his own
    The road he owns

    Rise Black Bart, rise I'm calling
    Calling your spirit out
    Dust off your hat and hatchet
    There are boxes out there with your name and mark

    The road has been cold and lonely
    The road has been out of good tales
    Let's shake up some dust
    We'll be opening the box like before, just like before
    And leave a poem

    For honor and for riches
    I've labored long and hard for the bread
    But on my corns too long you tread
    You fine haired sons of bitches

    A man appeared before Wells Fargo
    Wells Fargo's stage driver man
    Wearing long white linen
    And a dust flour sack over his head

    They call him Black Bart P08
    The highway bandit poetry man
    Leaving his poem, disappeared
    Like a ghost on his own, all on his own
    The road he owns

    For honor and for riches
    I've labored long and hard for the bread
    But on my corns too long you tread
    You fine haired sons of bitches Writer/s: MICHAEL POULSEN
