Notches and Dust

Mickey Mc Crew and Buckaroo Two cowboys of rowdy a draw 
Rode up the town and tide them both down the horses next to the door
Dispute the cards saloon ajared poker of clubs a straight ace
A cheat on the board Royal flush a fraud a shoot out for all these old mates

Roll out to street the mud to a meet the ladies run for dear life
These men akin a gouge and spin mash up one another's poor face
Men apart and guns a dart the fear the eye and the watch
A tick a tock the new town's peoples clock and bullets fly in to the crotch

Poor men is them the undertaker send a tape up for six by two feet
The crowd pour out and scream and shout the sherriffs gone for you when
Carriage away the morgue one did say and bury beyond the bray hill
Down in the dust a hand lay out thrust 5 aces where one had just lay
