Walk these streets, sidewalks of wood,

Where men wear boots, hats, and guns.

Women wear dresses of an earlier time,

Some of morals, others workmen for a dime.

A sheriff, a deputy, to keep peace and order,

Jail is for those who can’t follow the law.

A schoolhouse, a church, places of good,

Children learn lessons, a house of God.

A saloon is a place of drink and games,

A piano heard, upstairs, women of the night.

In a western town, there are many things,

A stable for horses, a gunfight to end one’s day,

Once upon a time in a western town.
