Wishbone Ash – Rock 'n Roll Widow lyrics

It happened in an open field
Down in a southern state
And no one knows the reason why
Some would say it's hate
They shot the guy who sold the dogs
It came as some surprise
And to a lady standing there
Brought sadness to her eyes

She's a rock and roll widow living in this town
Another rock and roll widow since they gunned him down

The heat of day still hung around
As night began to fall
The sheriff came up from the town
In answer to the call
The band played on in darkness
Not knowing what to do
As people ran from side to side
Just looking for a clue
