Lyrics

Verse 1:

You were sharp as a knife
You were quick as a whip
Never valued your life
Always shot from the hip

Verse 2:

You were hard as stone
You were cold as ice
Always got what you’re owed
Never had to ask twice

Pre-Chorus:

There’s no right or wrong
It’s just do or die
When you live by the gun
You’re either dead or alive

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

Verse 3:

You were tough as nails
You were strong as steel
Never thought you could fail
No matter the deal

Verse 4:

You were fierce as the wind
You were deep as the sea
You’d neither break nor bend
It’s die or live free

Pre-Chorus:

There’s no right or wrong
It’s just do or die
When you live by the gun
You’re either dead or alive

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

You’re playing Russian Roulette
At high noon
By the old saloon
So stake your claim
And take your aim
It’s only five live rounds

Bridge:

You gambled your life
All chips in
But you can never play dice
With the devil and win

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

You’re playing Russian Roulette
At high noon
By the old saloon
So stake your claim
And take your aim
It’s only five live rounds

* * *

Note: A standard game of Russian Roulette with a six gun involves only one round for a 1/6 chance of dying. But there are plenty of non-standard variants, including the inverse, with five rounds for a 1/6 chance of living.
