Black Stetson and a Stone Cold Heart

Now Jake was a Dapper man
Black Stetson and great style
Ladies were afraid of him
Even with that sparkling smile

They all feared his presence
Although he looked so cool
They may have been attracted
Yet these ladies were no fools

Never look him in the eye
Best to give him a wide berth
The old men tried to warn me
For Jake life had little worth

They agreed that Jake had style
Sadly he's as mean as they come
Nothing but a smooth talker
With a solid silver gun

I watched him for a moment
Then it seems I caught his eye
Walking slowly towards me
With his gun strapped to his thigh

I wasn't seeking trouble
Still it was coming my way
I stared him straight in the eye
and said "come make my day!" 

For a moment he waivered
He was used to seeing fear
Before he pulled his gun
I shot him in the ear

With that he dropped his gun
Because I drew too fast
If he made another move
It would surely be his last

Now they call him one eared Jake
He's not such a dapper man
It's much harder to get dressed
I shot some fingers off his hand



A Shadowlam production.

Thank you Shadow for Dapper Jake
and for letting me add to your story.
This was fun!

    I like how you communicate, a very cool use of the language. Somehow you make me think of smokey jazz bars in New Orleans. Thanks So much for commenting.

    You two are would have given the famous western novelist, Louis Dearborn L'Amour, a run for his money, had he been alive....The missing part? A love interest....of course, this was just humorous, so...that's ok. Great job you two...Great production company

    I didn't know he had died, someone told me once his full name was Lamoureux. Perhaps a distant relative. I think Jake ended up with one Eyed Sue.

    That was just plain cruel shooting his fingers off lol. Maybe he's more appealing to the ladies now he's a broken soul haha. Great write by both of you, reads wonderfully. Take care, Richard
