ballad of a well-known gun lyrics – elton john

i pulled out my stage coach times
and i read the latest news
i tapped my feet in dumb surprise
and of course i saw they knew

the pinkertons pulled out my bags
and asked me for my name
i stuttered out my answer
and hung my head in shame

now they’ve found me
at last they’ve found me
it’s hard to run
from a starving family

now they’ve found me
well i won’t run
i’m tired of hearing
there goes a well-known gun

now i’ve seen this chain gang
lord i say, let me see my priest
i couldn’t have faced your desert sand
old burning brown backed beast

the poor house, they hit me for my kin
and claimed my crumbling walls
now i know how reno felt
when he ran from the law

now they’ve found me
at last they’ve found me
it’s hard to run
from a starving family

now they’ve found me
well, i won’t run
i’m tired of hearing
there goes a well-known gun

now they’ve found me
lord, i say, at last they’ve found me
it’s hard to run
from a starving family

lord i say, now they’ve found me
well i won’t run
i’m tired of hearing
there goes a well-known gun

lord i say, now they’ve found me
at last they’ve found me
it’s hard to run
from a starving family

now they’ve found me
i won’t run
i’m tired of hearing
there goes a well-known gun

a well-known gun

now they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun
at last they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun

now they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun
at last they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun

now they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun
at last they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun

now they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun
at last they’ve found me
there goes a well-known gun
