Song Meaning
Verse 1
Stormy night under jet black skies
Billy pulls into town
Thunder rolled and the lightnin' bolts
Come crashin' to the ground
Cold as ice, hard as stone
As he walks into the room,
With another man who was feelin' the same way
All hell's breakin' loose
Verse 2
Bang bang, shoot'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
Verse 3
It's a showdown, in a no-man's land
For the cowboy of the modern day
Come on, sundown, don't be hangin' 'round,
'Cause the cowboy will blow you away
Verse 4
Al Capone and A Bad Boy Jones
On the wrong side of the law
Johnny D and his company,
Always first to the draw
Gangster lean, feelin' so mean,
Tryin' to take more than their share
'Cause all they saw was ruling it all
The seed of blood was in the air
Verse 5
Bang bang, shoot'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
Verse 6
It's a showdown, in a no-man's land
For a cowboy of the modern day
Come on, sundown, don't be hangin' 'round,
'Cause the cowboy will blow you away
Verse 7
Here we are and we've come this far,
But it's only getting worse
The foreign lands with their terrorist demands,
Only 'cause the good to hurt
Verse 8
The USA the USSR, with their six guns to their sides
I see the message written on the wall,
Too much anger deep inside
Verse 9
Bang bang, shoot'em up
Bang bang, blow you away
Verse 10
It's a showdown, in a no-man's land
For the cowboy of the modern day
Come on, sundown, don't be hangin' 'round,
'Cause the cowboy will blow you away
Verse 11
It's a showdown
