Ballad of Gunslinger Benjamin Pardoon

bat masterson
flipped a coin, tails
whipped bad company's
ass, his pardner paladin came
to join

preacher came
in to town with a thirst,
gunslinger benjamin pardoon
stood at the well hoisting the water
bucket for the lord first

paladin stepped
out of the saloon
black hat target for
a bullet, knocked it off
his head, bad salamander
came crawlin' in from the dune

pardoon with
his pistol cocked
ready to fire another,
preacher grabbed the well
rope to launder a distraction in
cahoots with pardoon, they robbed
wells fargo, preacher with his lies and
pardoon with his mob ties in disguise

church bell
rang four times
hanny caulder pulled
the burned-out dead horse
to the center of town, her punishment
for bedding a woman they called a witch,
south of heaven west of hell, she had 'em all
fooled, she drew her pistol and shot preacher, he
lit the match, she shot pardoon, he poured the kerosene,
paladin stepped back into the saloon with a hole in his hat,
bat flipped a coin, pussy whipped bad company's ass
