never, never, never

I rode into town with a deadly plan
never, never, never in the morning
to rob the bank and kill me a man
never, never, never in the morning
I needed gold for I’m dreadful poor
never, never, never in the morning
and the man had to die ’cause he killed my pa
never, never, never in the morning
now I robbed the bank with nary a shot
never, never, never in the morning
and I searched for the man with my temper hot
never, never, never in the morning
I found my man hid down by the creek
never, never, never in the morning
I said “You’re gonna die” in a voice so bleak
never, never, never in the morning
he went for his gun but I got mine first
never, never, never in the morning
and the bullets flew as I did my worst
never, never, never in the morning
they caught me then and threw me in gaol
never, never, never in the morning
nary a chance of getting bail
never, never, never in the morning
they took me to court where the judge did say
never, never, never in the morning
“We’re gonna hang you, son, at the break of day,
just this once in the morning”

    • I had the “never, never, never in the morning” and the final line before I wrote the body of the poem, but they gave me the flavour šŸ˜€
