A red headed stranger from Blue Rock Montana rode into town one day
The red headed stranger had eyes like the thunder ghis lips they were sad and tight
Don't cross him don't boss him he's wild in his sorrow he's ridin' and hidin' his pain

She drew back in fear at the sight of the stallion but cast greedy eyes on the bay
For this was the horse and his little lost darlin' had ridden when she was his wife

He bought her a drink and gave her some money he just didn't seem to care
He shot her so quick they had no time to warn her she never heard anyone say

You can't hang a man for killin' a woman who's tryin' to steal your horse
Stay out of the path of the raging black stallion and don't lay a hand on the bay
