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
