Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was known as Blackie's gunman
The best two gunman in the land
I could shoot the ace of diamonds
With a draw from either hand
Verse 2
With the dice I had no equal
Some of them are with us now
Most of them are sadly sleeping
'Neath the weeping willow bough
Verse 3
Many a cowboy's game I've played in
Left that night with all their gold
As a sport I was broken
As a sport I let it go
Verse 4
I once loved a girl named Nellie
How we loved no tongue can tell
But I know, I'll never meet her
Oh, it was hard to say farewell
Verse 5
Her eyes were like the deep blue water
And her hair was golden curls
And her cheeks were crimson velvet
And her teeth were snow white pearls
Verse 6
Together we lived in a cottage
And our life, it was a dream
And the angels they watched o'er us
Made our life one happy dream
