lyrics

I shot a man, I shot him dead
I put a bullet in his head
I pulled the trigger as he fled
I shot a man, I shot him dead

I loved a man and we were wed
I brought him back into my bed
He lay with me, the sheets turned red
I loved a man and we were wed

I woke at Reveille
With only memories
The sound of revelry
Broke my Reverie

I found that man’s black thoroughbred
Outside a house most spirited
He’d chosen looser girls instead
I stole my man’s black thoroughbred

It was demon steed
my gun was soon with me
I hardly heard them plead
That man and the woman on his knee

Good by darling, good by my dear

I loved a man and we were wed
I found him in another’s bed
I pulled the trigger as he fled
I shot my man, I shot him dead.
