(No lyrics)
Drinking beer in a cabaret, And was I havin' fun!
Until one night she caught me right, And now I'm on the run.
She kicked out my windshield, She hit me over the head.
She cussed and cried and said I lied, And wished that I was dead.
Drinking beer in a cabaret, And dancing with a blonde.
Until one night she shot out the light - BANG! That blonde was gone.
I’ll see you every night, babe, I’ll woo you every day.
I’ll be your reg’lar daddy If you put that gun away.
Lay that pistol down, Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol packin' mama, Lay that pistol down!
