     The Ballad Of Bill Thaxton
    >> Marty Robbins
        Bill Thaxton was an ex-ranger
    One of the bravest by far
    It's said that old Bill was the fastest man ever
    To pin on a ranger's star
    Stories about him were legends
    Bill was the best of the bold
    Bad men all feared him way back in his day
    But he was now growing old
    Into Bill's town rode an outlaw
    He wore his gun low and tied down
    He reined in his horse and announced to the crowd
    "If you speak to me call me Sundown"
    His clothes were all dark and fancy
    And topped by a black leather vest
    Somebody asked how he came by his name
    And if he was one of the best.
    The eyes of the tall stranger narrowed
    He grinned like the devil possessed
    "I never fight till the sun's going down
    And my back is facing the West"
    Said he wouldn't be with us tomorrow
    He only rode in for one thing
    He only stopped by to make Bill Thaxton die
    So he could add to his fame.
    "Go give Bill Thaxton a message
    And tell him a killer's in town
    Tell him we'll meet at the end of the street
    Just as the sun's going down"
    Somebody said it had been years
    Since old Bill had toted a gun
    Sundown replied that it wasn't his hide
    Killing old Bill would be fun
    The old ranger sent back his answer
    "Tell him that I'm on my way
    I've never ran and I'll meet this young man
    At any time of the day"
    Bill got there just about sunset
    It still hung like fire in the sky
    In just a few moments out there in the street
    Old Bill or the outlaw would die
    Slowly Bill slid from the saddle
    And started to make his advance
    The sun hit the old ranger square in the eyes
    The shadows had started to dance
    Bill started talking to Sundown
    Judging his distance that way
    Their stride was the same and at just thirty feet
    Both of the men made their play
    Bill's gun slipped leather like lightning
    His forty-four spoke with a whine
    The sun didn't bother Bill Thaxton at all
    Because the old ranger was blind
    Six shots delivered their message
    The ranger had emptied his gun
    Bill gave a sigh when there was no reply
    He knew that once more he had won
    The old ranger lowered his six gun
    He just stood there starting ahead
    Watching you'd think that old Bill didn't know
    In front of him Sundown lay dead
    Bill has been gone for a long time
    But old timers still can recall
    The day the old ranger stood up to the test
    And proved he was best of them all
