He sat there in his chair
Her arms around him tight.
You can't blame the lady
The lady she is blind
She said it's wrong to kill this man
Even if he's killed your child
Revenge is mine, said the Lord
Well the Lord's one lucky guy

Strike a blow for justice
Hear the gavel fall
Pray for the innocent
Justice for all

An eye for an eye
Would leave the whole world blind
Forgiveness is the way
But I can't forgive his crime
And if I had the chance
In truth I'd have to say
I'd gun that bastard down
With a smile on my face

Strike a blow for justice
Hear the gavel fall
Pray for the innocent
Justice for all

Don't do as I do
A wiser man would say
But on a journey of revenge
Be sure to dig two graves
And when they throw us in 'em
I hope the lady finally sees
Bears witness to the wrong and right
And knows which one I'll be

Strike a blow for justice
Hear the gavel fall
Pray for the innocent
Justice for all
Strike a blow for justice
Hear the gavel fall
