it was a lonely day in hell that I met you
soul searching for the light of day
I heard a voice in the devil's darkness
I saw a grinnin bird of prey

you cleared your leather and the rain came down
they had it comin some would say

gunslinger - the red sky is fallin
gunslinger - the chains of your soul
gunslinger - we all meet our maker
you gunned those zombies down

her eyes were two twin silver dollar moons
they burned from heaven in your song
she blew away just like a dirge in the desert
you closed your eyes then she’s gone

you begged the shadows please release her
they just laughed and crawled away

you’ll drift eternal til you find her
the world has long since moved away
you filled the grave with two dark angels
for what they did they had to pay
