Lyrics
In the days when the law was won By the man who proved his might Others questioned if they wanted to But that usually meant a fight He'd been a peaceful man of God till now Spreading the word of love and faith But those men took away his only earthly love He saw his woman murdered on that day Prayed over her for an hour more As she lay lifeless on the pew Set his white collar down next to her Then turned for what he knew he had to do . . . Strapped on a gun he'd never worn before . . . Took all the bullets he could find . . . No thoughts of God as he left the church . . . Only vengeance on his mind Those three men who came to rob the church Thought they'd find no one but him A kind and gentle man who'd rather turn the cheek They hadn't planned on Annie walking in A bold woman, especially for the times Never took flack from those around They got the gold, they silenced him, but she would not So they simply pulled their guns and shot her down . . . Single-minded focus in his purpose . . . Steady nerves and hands as well . . . He's hunting now, he's got three men to kill . . . He's gonna send their souls straight down to hell The town still comes to hear him speak Still spreads his messages of love Though he's added fire & brimstone to his sermons now And retributions from above The townfolk listen to his every word Knowing he's now much more than a guide It hasn't gone well for those who've disobeyed The preacher with a six gun by his side . . . Strapped on a gun he'd never worn before . . . Took all the bullets he could find . . . No thoughts of God as he left the church . . . Only vengeance on his mind
