showdown lyrics – eric johnson

rose and marshall jacob miller
lived in santa fe
jacob never wore his side guns
till news broke out

black bart was back in town
bart was gunning for the sheriff
revenge burned in his eyes
rosie tried to stop the marshall
as he left tears fell from her eyes

showdown in town
don’t you lose your life
put down your gun
stay inside tonight

jacob’s men were on the rooftop with artillery
shots rang out bart’s men were fallin’
someone’s callin’, marshall’s on the ground
and rose ran up to him and cried

oh lord, oh will you ever see
oh what you mean to me
and will we always be together
oh, together

showdown in town
lord, what have they done
’cause in the end
no one really won
