More than one hundred years ago In a town of the west,

Cochise County Arizona, Tombstone was the place.

There took place a gunfight at the legendary O.K. corral,

Considered the most famous gunfight in the history of the old west.

In the street, possibly a cool, breezy, fall day, three P.M., an end,

Took place did it in a narrow lot six doors west of rear entrance to O.K. corral.

A thirty second gunfight would be most tragic, a famous story,

Fremont street, the O.K. Corral, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Virgil, and Morgan Earp,

A fight with the Clantons and Mclaury’s on October twenty sixth, Wednesday.

Men died, Billy Clanton, Tom Mclaury, and brother frank lost their lives,

Morgan and Virgil Earp along with Doc Holliday were lucky to be only wounded.

Thirty shots fired, they were about six feet apart, men did die,

Wyatt Earp was the only one to escape unhurt, a long time ago in the old west.
