"Heartbreak Kid" as written by Ivor Arthur Davies and Robert Grant Kretschmer....
Dusty wind blew 'cross the high plains
As a stranger rode into town
With a certain reputation
For the ladies and a gun
He walked to the bar so casual
Just as easy as you please
He was bound to do some damage
With those Valentino eyes

Well, the barmaid was an angel
And she looked so out of place
And she said her name was "Sunset"
She was different from the rest
And she couldn't help but notice
The moment he walked through the door
That the gunman was something special
And the bullet found a score

[Chorus]
And the one mistake you make is just enough
And that one mistake is "Boy, you talk too tough"
Only takes a single bullet
Bring the fastest trigger down
Only takes a pretty woman
Put a gunman underground
And you may hear the same old story
In ev'ry town, on ev'ry street
The story of 'Sunset', and the
Heartbreak Kid

Dirty rain soaked through the doorway
Of an upper west side bar
And the TV news was talking
To the crowd of people there

"well the kid was always reckless
He said "I'll never stay too long"
"and when she knew that he would leave her
Sunset shot that gunman down"

[Chorus]

"Oh, the story of "Sunset"
And the Heartbreak Kid."
