IN A WESTERN TOWN

                            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
