Well a man come on the 6 o’clock news

Said somebody’s been shot, somebody’s been abused

Somebody blew up a building, somebody stole a car

Somebody got away, somebody didn’t get too far yeah

They didn’t get too far

Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son

A man had to answer for the wicked that he done

Take all the rope in Texas find a tall oak tree,

Round up all them bad boys hang them high in the street

For all the people to see

That justice is the one thing you should always find

You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line

When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune

And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon

We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing

Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds

Too much corruption, and crime in the streets

It’s time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground

Send ‘em all to their maker and he’ll settle ‘em down

You can bet he’ll set ‘em down

‘Cause justice is the one thing you should always find

You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line

When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune

We’ll all meet back at the local saloon

And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing

Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

You know justice is the one thing you should always find

You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line

When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune

And we’ll all meet back at the local saloon

And we’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing

Whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses
