Bounty Hunter

Lyrics: Valentino, Fuentes, Gauthier
Music: Valentino, Fuentes, Gauthier

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the late 1980s.

Buckles of silver
Stars made of gold
He was looking meaner
That I'd been told

He wore his shirt unbuttoned
Right down to the waist
And the lines of a killer
Well they marked his face

Chorus
Bounty hunter
He's as mean as they come
He just won't be happy
Till his job is done
Bounty hunter
I've got a price on my head
He just won't be happy
Till he sees me dead

I was winning at poker
With a whiskey in my hand
When the door swung open
I had to make my stand

I never heard him call me
But he must have said my name
'Cause I walked right out the door
Right into his game

[chorus]

[chorus]

Bounty hunter
Bounty hunter
Bounty hunter
Bounty hunter
Bounty hunter
Bounty hunter
