lyrics

I wake up as the sun is going down
Horse hooves hammerin’ in my head
I got a notion that before this night is through
Somebody's gonna wind up dead

I step out as the gang ride into town
All alone, but I’m ready to die
I’m half cut and I’m fixin’ for a fight
No, I won't hide this time

It's a cold, cold night but I burn with dark desire
Your sins are gasoline - and brothers, I am fire
Gonna set your goddamn world alight tonight

I quickdraw and I shoot the bastards down
Got a demon dancing in my hand
You’re gonna wish that you’d stayed away this time
You messed with the wrong man

It's a cold, cold night but I burn with dark desire
Your sins are gasoline - and brothers, I am fire
Gonna set your goddamn world alight tonight

"The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance. He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked." (Psalms 58:10)

"Cursed be he who does the Lord's work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood." (Jeremiah 48:10)
