Oh, Mr. Crest, Mr. Crest
Expect for me to rest?
How in the world you
You've got my 22-20

An she act a fool
If I send for my baby
An she don't never come
I declare, they can't help her none
You know, sometimes she gets unruly
Sometimes she gets unruly
But I get my 22-20

Buddy, it's most too light
Buddy, it's most too light
Will make ev'rything, alright
Ah-or, your .44-40
Your .44-40
But my .22-20

With my 22-20 in my
With my 22-20 in my
I declare, I never have harmed a man
Lord, oh I measured my gun
I measured my gun
I'm gon' raise me some sand
