Just what is correct?

Words of love linger in the evening
Soft as all the rain that falls down
Feel the pain of the sadness
Johnny took his guns to town

In the hours before the leaving
Mother held him close to her breast
No begging or pleading could
Keep her Johnny from his quest

Johnny wife forced into servitude
Sheriff meet Johnny at the door
Shotgun leveled right at him
Johnny lay upon the floor

Sheriff, blood splattered, leaves a smiling
A hand lifts a gun from the floor
Only sound, the one loud bark
Sheriff dead, falls by the door

Words of love linger in the evening
Soft as all the rain that falls down
Mary still holds the sheriff’s shotgun
Husband put into the ground
