LyricsEdit

Ugh!
Stormy night under jet black skies
Billy pulls into town
Thunder rolled and the lightnin' bolts
Come crashin' to the ground

Cold as ice, hard as stone
As he walks into the room
With another man who was feelin' the same way
All hell's breakin' loose

Bang bang, shoot 'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
It's a showdown in a no man's land
For the cowboy of the modern day

Come on!
Sundown, don't be hangin' 'round
'Cause the cowboy'll blow you away, yeah

Al Capone and the Bad Boy Jones
On the wrong side of the law
Johnny D and his company
Always first to the draw

Gangster lean, feelin' so mean
Tryin' to take more than their share
'Cause all they saw was was ruling it all
The scent of blood was in the air

Bang bang, shoot 'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
It's a showdown in a no man's land
For the cowboy of the modern day

Come on!
Sundown, don't be hangin' 'round
'Cause the cowboy'll blow you away

So here we are and we've come this far
But it's only getting worse
The foreign lands with their terrorist demands
Only cause the good to hurt

The USA, the USSR
With their six-guns to their side
I see the message written on the wall
Too much anger deep inside

Bang bang, ah shoot 'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
It's a showdown in a no man's land
For the cowboy of the modern day

Ah come on!
Sundown, don't be hangin' 'round
'Cause the cowboy'll blow you away
It's a showdown
