    Choctaw Bingo by James McMurtry - just a really fun song with some neat gun-related stuff in the middle... but feel free to skip the rest of the song - itgets a little too "down and dirty"

    Ringo...Lorne Green.

    He lay face down in the desert sand
    Clutching his six-gun in his hand
    Shot from behind, I thought he was dead
    But under his heart was an ounce of lead
    But a spark still burned so I used my knife
    And late that night I saved the life of Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . .)

    I nursed him till the danger passed
    The days went by, he mended fast
    Then from dawn till setting sun
    He practiced with that deadly gun
    And hour on hour I watched in awe
    No human being could match the draw of Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    One day we rode the mountain crest
    And I went east and he went west
    I took to law and wore a star
    While he spread terror near and far
    With lead and blood he gained such fame
    All throught the West they feared the name of Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    I knew someday I'd face the test
    Which one of us would be the best
    And sure enough the word came down
    That he was holed up in the town
    I left the posse out in the street
    And I went in alone to meet Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    They said my speed was next to none
    But my lightning draw had just begun
    When I heard a blast that stung my wrist
    The gun went flying from my fist
    And I was looking down the bore
    Of the deadly .44 of Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    They say that was the only time
    That anyone had seen him smile
    He slowly lowered his gun and then
    He said to me "We're even, friend"
    And so at last I understood
    That there was still a spark of good in Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    I blocked the path of his retreat
    He turned and stepped into the street
    A dozen guns spit fire and lead
    A moment later, he lay dead
    The town began to shout and cheer
    Nowhere was there shed a tear for Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    The story spread throughout the land
    That I had beaten Ringo's hand
    And it was just the years, they say
    That made me put my guns away
    But on his grave they can't explain
    The tarnished star above the name of Ringo

    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )
    (Ringo . . . Ringo . . . )

    One More.

    Johnson County War...Chris LeDoux

    Headed for Wyoming, in 1882..A woman, a team, and a wagon.
    Gonna make our dreams come true.
    Settled in the foothills of the big horn mountain slope.
    Life is sweet we lived on the meat, of the deer and the antelope.

    We cut house logs on the moutain, with the team we hauled 'em down.
    Peeled 'em and we stacked 'em up, plowed some bottom ground.
    Traded for some cattle, and turned 'em out on the range.
    The skies were blue and we never knew...How things were gonna change.

    Ole powder river, you're muddy and wide,
    how many men have died...upon your shores.
    When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
    There's no middle ground in this Johnson Country War.

    Well, the neighbors stopped by yesterday,
    while I was outside choppin' some wood.
    And they filled me in on the local news, ain't none of it sounded good,
    Said, they'd been some cattle stealin', by some no count outlaw bands.
    We'd all been branded rustler's by the big ranchers of this land.

    Well it was us against the cattlemen, and the years just made it worse.
    First the drought, then the tough winter,
    Johnson County had been dealt a curse,
    Then their came the story about the two "dry gulch" attacks:
    Ranger Jones and John Tisdale both been shot in the back...

    Oh, Powder River, you're muddy and you're wide,
    How many men have died upon your shores.
    When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
    There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War.

    Then last night at supper time, riders stopped by chance.
    They said cattleman and hired guns, just burned the Kaycee Ranch,
    Two men had died this mornin', shot down in the snow.
    Now the vigilante army was marchin' for Buffalo.

    Well the county was in an uproar, an every man saddled up to ride.
    Caught the cattlemen at the TA Ranch, and surrounded all four sides.
    We hailed the house with bullets and swore we'd make 'em pay.
    But the calvery came across the plains, and once again saved the day.

    Well, they marched 'em off to Cheyenne, and no one went to jail.
    The cattlemen we're all turned loose, and the hired guns hit the trail.
    And I guess the only justice, wasn't much to say the least.
    Last winter me and mine ate mighty fine on the cattle baron's beef.

    Oh Powder River, you're muddy and you're wide.
    How many men have died upon your shores.
    When you brand a man a rustler, he's gotta take a side.
    There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War.
    There's no middle ground in this Johnson County War...

    If I send for my baby, and she don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
    All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

    And if she gets unruly, thinks she don't wan' do
    And if she gets unruly and thinks she don't wan' do
    Take my 32-20, now, and cut her half in two

    She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
    She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
    I got a 32-20, got to make the caps alright

    If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
    All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

    I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gonna shoot my gatling
    I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gotta shoot my gatling gun
    You made me love you, now your man have come

    Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
    Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
    You got your hair all tangled and you ain't talking right

    Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
    Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
    I got a 32-20 now, and it's a burning

    If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
    If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
    All the doctors in Wisconsin sure can't help her none

    Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
    Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
    You didn't come home until the sun was shining bright

    A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
    A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
    With this 32-20 laying up and down my breast
