"Gunsmoke" as written by and Duane Curtis Roland Bruce Hull Jr Crump....
Well I rode into town with my ear to the ground
Looking for the right hand to play
I felt just right in the heat of the night
I'd ridden many miles that day

I heard of a place where men got together
Playin' and layin' it down
I'm going in to win, but Lord, what a sin
I didn't know they'd gun me down

[Chorus]
Gun smoke on the horizon, hiding the setting sun
Gun smoke on the horizon, I grabbed my horse and run
Well the dealer was blind and I was trying to find
A way to keep the winnings I'd found
The smoke was thick, the tension was thicker
I still thought they'd gun me down

Gun smoke on the horizon, hiding the setting sun
Gun smoke on the horizon, I grabbed my horse and run
I didn't come into this ol' two horse town to get all shot I've got a little livin' on my mind
Aces and eights, ha-ha-ha-ha

Now the dealer dealt me eight and I had my straight
I knew the other men would call
The booze was a flowin', my cards were showing
But my back was up against the wall

[Chorus]
Gun smoke on the horizon, hiding the setting sun
Gun smoke on the horizon, I grabbed my horse and run
C'mon Thunder
