There Goes a Well Known Gun [Previously Unreleased] Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I pulled out my stage coach times
And I read the latest news
I tapped my feet in dumb surprise
And of course I saw they knew
Verse 2
The Pinkertons pulled out my bags
And asked me for my name
I stuttered out my answer
And hung my head in shame
Verse 3
Now they've found me
At last they've found me
It's hard to run
From a starving family
Verse 4
Now they've found me
Well I won't run
I'm tired of hearing
There goes a well-known gun
Verse 5
Now I've seen this chain gang
Lord I say let me see my priest
I couldn't have faced your desert sand
Old burning brown backed beast
Verse 6
The poor house they hit me for my kin
And claimed my crumbling walls
Now I know how Reno felt
When he ran from the law
Verse 7
Now they've found me
At last they've found me
It's hard to run
From a starving family
Verse 8
Now they've found me
Well I won't run
I'm tired of hearing
There goes a well-known gun
Verse 9
Now they've found me
Lord I say at last they've found me
It's hard to run
From a starving family
Verse 10
Lord I say now they've found me
Well I won't run
I'm tired of hearing
There goes a well-known gun
Verse 11
Lord I say now they've found me
At last they've found me
It's hard to run
From a starving family
Verse 12
Now they've found me
I won't run
I'm tired of hearing
There goes a well-known gun
