The publican's daughter
Was working at the bar
I'd just rolled in
From a town afar
Sat myself down
And ordered a beer
She had those kind of eyes
That said tonight, you'll my dear
But when she went outside
The farrier said, "Son
Don't go near that one"

The car dealer's dog
He was barking at the gate
I was walking a country street
Trying to change my fate
I said, "Hey there, dog
Have you got any ideas?"
He said, "Do you know what you want?
And can you face your fears?"
"Well, the girl back at the bar
She looks like fun"
He barked at me and said
"Don't go near that one"

Back in the green room
I noticed on the wall
Engravings from other bands
That had gone before
One said we just lost our drummer
To the publican's girl
He fell right in
Got cradled in her curls
Then the last thing he saw
Was the barrel of her daddy's gun
We beg you please
Don't go near that one
Don't go near that one
Don't go near that one
