Song was written by David Friedman & Peter Kellogg.

GOVERNOR:
Johnny Blood
Johnny Blood
A boy condemned to die

SHERIFF:
Johnny Blood
Johnny Blood
Soon they'll hang him high

MARY JO:
Can anybody save him?

BELLA:
Will anybody try?

PRIEST:
Johnny Blood, Prepare Yourself

GOVERNOR, SHERIFF, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Your doom is nigh

JOHNNY:
I didn't didn't mean to kill Big Swede
But I was robber by drink
The whole thing happened in a blur
I had no time to think
Bella, she was with me
And oh
I loved her so
And that, my boys, was my mistake
That woman brought me low

GOVERNOR, SHERIFF, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Johnny Blood
Johnny Blood
A woman brought him low

JOHNNY:
Then Big Swede grabbed her off
I told him, "Let her be!"
I knocked him down
And next I knew, his gun was aimed at me
Several shots were fired
Who shot first?
I don't know
There's just one thing I'm sure of, boys
A woman brought me low

GOVERNOR, SHERIFF, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST, JOHNNY:
Can anybody see him?
Will anybody try?
Johnny Blood, prepare yourself
Your doom is nigh

GOVERNOR, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Johnny Blood, Johnny Blood

SHERIFF:
Johnny Blood

GOVERNOR, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
A boy condemned to die

SHERIFF:
Johnny Blood

GOVERNOR, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Soon they'll hang him high

GOVERNOR, SHERIFF, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Can anybody see him?

JOHNNY:
Who will save me?

GOVERNOR, SHERIFF, MARY JO, BELLA, PRIEST:
Johnny Blood, prepare yourself
Your doom is nigh
Ah
