Lyrics

Draw That Line

On a headstone are two carved dates
And in-between is a line that's etched
And Maggie's son would brag about how
He'd carve that line of birth and death

She tried to raise him the best she could
A gunfighter's life was all he understood
Every quick draw that would come and go
Left a yearning on her young son's soul ... and he'd say

Chorus:
I'll draw that line
Send a man to his grave
I'll have him buried in pine
That's the price he'll pay -
be a lawman or a bounty hunter
Yeah man, I got their number -
From the day they're born
Til the day they die
yeah, ... I'll draw that line

Quick on the temper, quicker on the trigger
Wrote a story in blood a whole town remembered
The Marshall vowed to have him hanged
Tracked him to the shack he was raised

Maggie could tell by the look in his eye
Her son wasn't going to be taken alive
When the time came, he knew the score
and then before he headed out the door ... he said

Chorus:
I'll draw that line
Send a man to his grave
I'll have him buried in pine
That's the price he'll pay
be a lawman or a bounty hunter
Yeah man, I got their number
From the day they're born
Til the day they die
yeah, ... I'll draw that line

Bridge:
It happened so fast it took her breath
She ran to him as he laid in the dust
He drew that line, she knew he chose death
And the last thing he had said was

Chorus:
I'll draw that line
Send a man to his grave
I'll have him buried in pine
That's the price he'll pay
be a lawman or a bounty hunter
Yeah man, I got their number
From the day they're born
Til the day they die
yeah, ... I'll draw that line
