Bullet and the Stray

This song was created for Game of Bands round 113 : "Once Upon a Time in the West"

Lyrics:

The Bullet and the Stray

V
The sunsets in my eyes,
As a tear falls down to dust
With a distant sound of trouble,
The water turns to rust
Peace is shattered silently
Though in the streets it blows
The stranger rides to hope street,
His face his hanging low
V
She takes the strike for insolence
She takes the justice dealt
With a hold on love the jailer tolls
The strain of freedom felt
For prison is a place
Where walls are built around
This Town it holds a hundred souls
Beaten down to sand

Pre-C
When the wind blows in the oak tree
When the free are not enslaved
A name means nothing to you or I
We all just wash away

C
A saviour to the people
Save me from myself
The troubled past forgotten
By the bullet and the stray
When I walk down
When I walk down
When I walk I hear it
The Bullet and the stray

V
My blood boils in the desert
The september rattled sun
The words like chatter echo
Through the barrel of a gun
A stranger offers comfort,
The price to pay is high
The devil's in the detail
The man returns to sky
[Exit]
