Come with me to a cold cloudless night on the prairie. See the outlaw sawing his way through the bars of his cell. See the terrified courier bringing you the news of his escape. Feel the fear as you load your rifle and wait for the heartless criminal to draw.


DRAW (Franklin)

Blue moon rises, cold and lifeless, a canvas in the starless sky.
Tonight, I’ll paint it red.
The outlaw’s warning came this morning by courier, white with fear.
He knows what’s going down.

There’s murder on the breeze,
And he’s riding out for me.
Well, if he’s so sure about his speed, he can just…

Locked away ‘til the judgment day for the killin’ of an innocent man,
He knows I tipped the sheriff off.
Now he’s escaped, and I’d explain, but you can’t reason with a crazy man.
A bullet’s worth a thousand words.


I’m a peaceful man, but I never back down,
So there’s gonna be a reckonin’ when you come around.
You’re fast, you’re angry, but I think you’re gonna find
That justice is on my side. Come on DRAW.
