Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Two Gunslingers lyrics
Two gunslingers walked
Out in the street and one said
"I don't wanna fight no more"
And the other gunslinger
Thought about it and said
"Yeah, what are we fighting for"

I'm takin' control of my life
I'm takin' control of my life
I'm takin' control of my life
Right now, oh yeah

Well the crowd that
Assembled for the gunfight
Were let down
Everyone hissed and booed
And a stranger told his missus
"That's the last one of those Gunfights you're ever
Gonna drag me to"


Well the two gunslingers
Went ridin' out of town and were
Never heard from no more
And there ain't been a
Gunfight for a long time
Maybe never, but nobody knows for sure
