Tin Star

Intro

I was good with a gun

Was quick on the draw.

I’d read a book or two

Knew just enough law.

They shot down the sheriff

In front of the bar.

I bent down and grabbed his badge.

Pinned on that tin star.

Chorus

Picking it up was easy.

Putting it down is hard.

Now they say take it away.

Tin star, tin star, tin star.

Verse

You could hear the lighting striking

Both of the bandits fell.

There was a cloud of gun smoke.

I’d sent em both to hell.

Verse

I was told you earned it keep it.

We don’t care who you are.

Just promise you’ll keep the peace here.

You can keep that tin star.

Chorus

Picking it up was easy.

Putting it down is hard.

Now they say take it away.

Tin star, tin star, tin star.

Verse

Rumors have a way of spreading

Wasn’t long till they came.

Killers and wanna be youngsters.

Looking to make a name.

Bridge

When the lighting strikes I’m standing.

They are face down on the ground.

All of the people who praised me

Now want me out of their town.

Chorus

Picking it up was easy.

Putting it down is hard.

Now they say take it away.

Tin star, tin star, tin star.
