Lyrics
Keep your hand on your gun
Don't you trust anyone
There's just one kind of man
That you can trust
That's a dead man...
Or a gringo like me
Be the first one to fire
Every man is a liar
There's just one kind of man
Who tells the truth
That's a dead man...
Or a gringo like me
Don't be a fool for a smile or a kiss
Or your a bullet might miss
Keep your eye on your goal
There's just one rule
That can save you your life
It's a hand on your knife
And the Devil in your soul
Keep your hand on your gun
Don't you trust anyone
There's just one kind of man
That you can trust
That's a dead man...
Or a gringo like me
Keep your hand on your gun
Don't you trust anyone
There's just one kind of man
That you can trust
That's a dead man...
Or a gringo like me...
Or a gringo like me...
Or a gringo like me...
...like me...
