He was tougher than leather
And he didn't care whether
The sun shined or not
When a young kid in Cow Town
Wanted a showdown
He was careless or just maybe forgot
But he died in the gunfight
Blinded by sunlight
Never draw when you're facin' the sun
And old tougher than leather
Just carved one more notch on his gun

And when he turned to go
The beautiful maiden knelt down
Where her dead sweetheart lay
