I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on Channel 2
A bad gunslinger called Salty Sam was chasin' poor
Sweet Sue
He trapped her in the old sawmill and said with an evil
Laugh,
"If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
I'll saw you all in half! "
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He turned on the bandsaw (and then, and then... !)

[Chorus:]
And then along came Jones
Tall thin Jones
Slow-walkin' Jones
Slow-talkin' Jones
Along came long, lean, lanky Jones

Commercial came on, so I got up to get myself a snack
You should've seen what was goin' on by the time that I
Got back
Down in the old abandoned mine, Sweet Sue was havin'
Fits
That villain said, "Give me the deed to your ranch
Or I'll blow you all to bits! "
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He lit the fuse to the dynamite (and then, and
Then... !)

[Chorus:]

I got so bugged I turned it off and turned on another
Show
But there was the same old shoot-'em-up and the same
Old rodeo
Salty Sam was tryin' to stuff Sweet Sue in a burlap
Sack
He said, "If you don't give me the deed to your ranch
I'm gonna throw you on the railroad tracks! "
And then he grabbed her (and then)
He tied her up (and then)
He threw her on the railroad tracks (and then)
A train started comin' (and then, and then... !)

[Chorus:]
