Got a prayer in my left hand and murder in the right,
tonight's the night it's gonna end in a fight.
This bucket o' blood's gonna burn the breeze,
you're gonna bite the ground or buckle at the knees.
Got blood in my left hand and pity in the right,
can't run when the water's hell or high.
The lines are drawn and the money's right,
high noon's tickin' it's a devil's night.
You're gonna get buried, gonna get buried alive boy.
You're gonna get burned, gonna get put down tonight.
No one's gonna worry, no one's gonna get come looking for you.
We're gonna dig you a grave in this cold town tonight.
Got a priest on my left side, the law on the right.
Today's the day they're gonna hang me high,
till' my boys came rolling in, hell on their side, singin'
"Brother today ain't your day to die!"
Got God on my left side, the Devil on the right.
Today's the day they're gonna judge me right.
My life on the scale tipped hard to the right, he said
"You're gonna get burned, gonna get put down down tonight."
