IN A WESTERN TOWN

 Walk these streets, sidewalks of wood,

 Where men wear boots, hats, and guns.

 Women wear dresses of an earlier time,

 Some of morals, others work men for a dime.

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

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

 A school house, 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.

              Keith Garrett
