lyrics

Many moons ago before the west was won
And the law was just the youngest man with the fastest gun
I was the tyrant of the desert, the sultan of the plains
With a golden palomino for the golden suzerain

I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James
I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs
You’ll never find my name though you may look
For my name is only found in the Devil’s book

I leave a wake of death behind me a thousand miles wide
A thousand rivers of blood and tears the dying cried
I remember every plea for mercy begged in vain
I am the Great Separator and the instrument of pain

I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James
I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs
You’ll never find my name though you may look
For my name is only found in the Devil’s book

I was the tyrant of the desert, the sultan of the plains
With a golden palomino for the golden suzerain
I’ve killed more living souls than the Devil can claim
And I’ll kill a thousand more because I have no name

I didn’t ride with Shotgun Betty, didn’t ride with Jesse James
I didn’t ride with wanted outlaws, didn’t ride with outlaw gangs
You’ll never find my name though you may look
For my name is only found in the Devil’s book

You’ll never find my name
You’ll never find my name
You’ll never find my name
For my name is only found in the Devil’s book

about

Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Sarah Shook & The Disarmers are a country band with a sneer, a bite, and no apologies. Shook's original songs take on the usual country spin on shitty relationships, bad decisions, and excessive alcohol consumption for damn good reasons.
