Doc Holliday

Album: Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies (2013)
  • An outlaw walking through the valley of men
    Glared with a sunken eye of death
    Moved his head from side to side and said
    Come on you gutless slugs fight like a man
    State your name and business and let's see what you got
    Another body for the hangman's count
    Show me the bar, and show me the cards
    Hold on to your guys

    Filled up with bug juice
    The moon shine in his hand
    Hot headed with a temperament
    The speediest deadliest man with a gun
    A bloody gambler but a gentleman dog
    A frontier vagabond who charms all the dames
    Hello ladies how's your day today
    Let me introduce you to myself
    Doc Holiday

    Ooooooooooh the outlaw man's roar

    A friendly man but without a friend
    Fort Griffin Texas here I am
    Supported Wyatt Earp to the very end
    Cemented brotherhood
    Don't get in his way
    You cannot shake his boots
    You cannot scare his fate
    Down under you will hear him grin
    Great the man the outlaw himself
    Doc Holiday
