Shot Down Lyrics

Oh, he was raised up by a preacher in the badlands
His bible was a black colt 45
And Johnny said no to [...]
they'll never take him alive
He was a renegade, and a pistol wielding gambler
Wore silver spurs and always dressed to kill

But one day it came
his rival took aim
with a drop dead eye chill
A crowd stood and stared
But nobody cared
And Johnny lay there still

Shot down
Took from this world
By a 6 gun flame
Shot down
His body laid down
In the pouring rain

Now Johnny lived his life by codes of pride and glory
He always told'em take your best damn shot
But this day his luck ran dry
got him straight through the heart
Then Johnny's mama came all running
From the church house
She asked "oh lord have mercy on his soul"
But she never cried
She knew it was time
for this bell to toll

Then sometimes in town
The wind makes a sound
That Johnny's name still shows

Shot down
Took from his pride
By a 6 gun flame
Shot down
Justice struck cold
In the pouring rain

Oh yeah
And when justice struck his blackened heart
Johnny felt his pride go numb
But he never prayed for mercy
He knew his time had come

Shot down
Took from this world
By a 6 gun flame
Shot down
The bad man laid down
In the pouring rain

Shot down
Justice bell tolled on the showdown stage
Shot down
His judge and his jury
In a 6 gun blaze

Oh yeah
Colt 45
Took Johnny's life
They shot him cold
Just as told
