Colt 45 Lyrics
There was a gun that won the west
There was a man among the best
The fastest gun or man alive
A lightning bolt when he drew that Colt 45
He carried the message of law and of order
Into a wicked land
With a Colt Single Action Army revolver
Blazing from either hand
There was the right there was the wrong
The gun was quick the man was strong
And peace was made when they’d arrived
A lightning bolt when the drew that Colt 45
