Jim Stafford – Cow Pattie lyrics

From the badlands came the killer
He lived by the knife and the gun
He'd cut ya just for standin'
Shoot ya if ya tried to run
He was as big aa a tree and did as he pleased
And everthing he did was bad
They said if ya was to kill him
You'd only make him mad
From the goodlands come the cowgirl
Patty was her name
She was hot on the trail of that killer
On a moped she called Flame
Cause the killer had killed her daddy
For spittin' in the road
And you only had to kill her daddy once
To get that gal po'd

Yippee yay a Cow Patty
Yippee yay a Cow Patty
She rode in to town to find the man who killed her daddy
Yippee yay a Cow Patty

Killer hit town at day break
Ate the door off the local saloon
He started to drink
You could tell ne was thinkin' they'll be a showdown soon
Patty hit town in a cloud of dust
Old Flame was buzzin' like a saw
And the whole town got as quiet as a church
When the killer stepped out for the draw
Forty shots rang out forty people fell
Patty and the killer missed each other
But they shot that town to hell


Killer took a step toward Patty
Said it's time I gunned you down
But he slipped in somethin' that was layin in the street
And was shot fore he hit the ground
Yes the killer slipped
And it cost him his life
And Patty said as she roared out of town
You gotta watch your step
When you know the chips are down
