Lyrics

    He lay face down in the desert sand
    Clutching his six-gun in his hand
    Shot from behind, I thought he was dead
    But under his heart was an ounce of lead
    But a spark still burned so I used my knife
    And late that night, I saved the life of Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    I nursed him till the danger passed
    The days went by, he mended fast
    Then from dawn till setting sun
    He practiced with that deadly gun
    And hour on hour, I watched in awe
    No human being could match the draw of Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    One day, we rode the mountain crest
    And I went east and he went west
    I took to law and wore a star
    While he spread terror near and far
    With lead and blood, he gained such fame
    All thought the West they feared the name of Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    I knew someday, I'd face the test
    Which one of us would be the best
    And sure enough the word came down
    That he was holed up in the town
    I left the posse out in the street
    And I went in alone to meet Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    They said my speed was next to none
    But my lightning draw had just begun
    When I heard a blast that stung my wrist
    The gun went flying from my fist
    And I was looking down the bore
    Of the deadly .44 of Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    They say that was the only time
    That anyone had seen him smile
    He slowly lowered his gun and then
    He said to me, "We're even, friend"
    And so at last, I understood
    That there was still a spark of good in Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    I blocked the path of his retreat
    He turned and stepped into the street
    A dozen guns spit fire and lead
    A moment later, he lay dead
    The town began to shout and cheer
    Nowhere was there shed a tear for Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo

    The story spread throughout the land
    That I had beaten Ringo's hand
    And it was just the years, they say
    That made me put my guns away
    But on his grave they can't explain
    The tarnished star above the name of Ringo

    Ringo, Ringo
    Ringo, Ringo
