I was born in Wild Wyoming I always fancied roaming
'Til I rode into Old Dodge City now I'll stay there til I die
Oh I'm wanted in Texas and Tennessee
Dead or alive Bad Sadie Lee I take just what I want as I pass by

I can draw faster than a man can see
I can shoot better than Annie Oakley
Ain't no one around who shoots better than me
And I'll show you just what I mean

I fired a shot at a buzzard on a limb
Killed him stone dead but it went through him
Shot a buffalo down in Mexico
Shot a blasted Jim Crow in a bar I never had been

I don't have to wait for Sadie Hawkins Day
All I have to holler is the word okay
They know I'll shoot them if they run away
But there's one true love I've had

The man I loved was called Daniel Boone
We crooned beneath the watermelon moon in June
But he left me for a ginger-haired ornery raccoon
And that's what turned me bad

Shankman Janet
