The Outlaw

The Outlaw

A Poem by The Iron Horseman
"

A song about an outlaw coming to the end of his road...

"

The Outlaw


Chorus

I can ride,

I can fight,

I can hide,

In the dead of night.


I can shoot,

Yeah, gun 'em all down,

I take the loot,

Then head out of town.


Chorus


I can run,

But I can no longer hide.

When it's all done,

My friends have all died.


Chorus


(extended guitar break with duelling leads)


Now it's just me,

Yeah, I stand all alone.

Whatever must be,

Requires a heart of stone.


Chorus


My pistols roar,

They have their own voice.

Just one more chore,

This is my final choice.


Chorus


As darkness descends,

On my life of crime,

I choose my own end,

I go in my own time.


Chorus


I no longer ride,

I'm done with the fight.

No more trying to hide,

I go into the light


(ethereal lead guitar, suddenly hacked apart by power chords from the opposing guitar)


Hello Devil, Hello Hell,

I'm deep within the Wishing Well!

Author's Note

The Iron Horseman
This is a breakneck speed piece of power metal. Think Metallica at their best and you won't go far wrong!

Thank you, Fairy. I'm glad you liked it.
I can imagine a song with these lyrics. Nothing like a good bit of heavy metal. Now you've got to record it. Who do ya think would sing it well. Anyone in mind?

My choice would be Def Leppard, because they can do everything well!

Good choice.
This is catchy, hypnotic, cool and interesting, can't beat a good bit of power metal. To kick some a*s.
