Under the lights where we stand tall-
Nobody touches us at all-
Showdown, shootout,-
spread fear within, without-
We’re gonna take what’s ours to have-
Spread the word throughout the land-
They say the bad guys wear black-
We’re tagged and can’t turn back-

You see us comin’-
And you all together run for cover-
We’re takin’ over this town-

Here we come, reach for your gun-
And you better listen well my friend, you see-
It’s been slow down below,-
Aimed at you, we’re the cowboys from hell-
Deed is done again, we’ve won-
Ain’t talking no tall tales friend-
Cause high noon, your doom-
Comin’ for you we’re the cowboys from hell-

Pillage the village, trash the scene-
But better not take it out on me-
Cause a ghost town is found-
Where your city used to be-
So out of the darkness and into the light-
Sparks fly everywhere in sight-
From my double barrel, twelve gauge,-
Can’t lock me in your cage-

You see us comin’-
And you all together run for cover-
We’re takin’ over this town-

Here we come, reach for your gun-
And you better listen well my friend, you see-
It’s been slow down below,-
Aimed at you, we’re the cowboys from hell-
Deed is done again, we’ve won-
Ain’t talking no tall tales friend-
Cause high noon, your doom-
Comin’ for you we’re the cowboys from hell-

(Solo)-

Here we come, reach for your gun-
And you better listen well my friend, you see-
It’s been slow down below,-
Aimed at you, we’re the cowboys from hell-
Deed is done again, we’ve won-
Ain’t talking no tall tales friend-
Cause high noon, your doom-
Comin’ for you we’re the cowboys from hell-

Step aside, we’re the cowboys from hell-
