lyrics

In the Southwestern nation
They killed a young maiden
The one true love of my life

Know where I am goin’,
The blood will be flowin’
For I’d promised to make her my wife

There was talks of a Preacher
Mysterious creature
Who suddenly couldn’t be found

So I’d vowed that I’d find him
And put all the time in
To hear him make his final sound

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

Each year I grew older
My heart it grew colder
As I killed those who did me no wrong

They stood in the way of
A labor of lost love
The only thing that moved me along

One day in Tuscon
A bar patron went on
About an new Preacher around

But he knew he’d been lyin’
For that day he was sighted
With a well known lady of town

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

The church I did enter
He stood front and center
Heard every word that he said

A small bird, it flew in
With a plumage of crimson
Landed on a pew up ahead

He held up his bible
I held up my rifle
Scripture filled up the air

I claimed it was fiction
A sweet contradiction
I saw the guilt deep in his stare

I rolled with the outlaws
The justice of my cause
The honor for which I once stood
Forlorn and forsaken
My body it's breakin’
I did the best that I could

Scream out for mercy
Your god won’t save you now
The hammer of my vengeance
Is coming down…

Reign of blood and thunder
The corpses pile up high
The red sea'll be parted
With my cry…

Shine on, sweet diamond
My lover, my dear
I never stopped searching
All these years…

Brushed by a cool breeze
Fell down to my knees
Watched the blood spill from my chest

With my retribution
Came full absolution
So wow I must lay down to rest
