Now Mohawk John knew he did wrong
when he went and killed some men
They sent for the marshal to bring him in
they sent for Marshal Skin

He rolled into town,
and pulled his cowboy hat down
Cause everyone knows a skinhead,
and skinheads aren't allowed
(skinheads aren't allowed)
in Mohawk Town

The sun was high and his mouth was dry
So he rolled up to the saloon
He ordered himself some red eye
he knew he'd meet John soon
Checked out all the Mohawks
sittin roud the bar
He knew he found the Mohawk town
and John couldn't be too far

He rolled into town,
and pulled his cowboy hat down
Cause everyone knows a skinhead,
and skinheads aren't allowed
(skinheads aren't allowed)
in Mohawk Town

He walked out of the saloon
and there stood Mohawk John
He didn't have no time to speak
both guns had just been drawn
Now Mohawk John was quick
but Skin shot straight and fast
He put a slug right through his heart
and laid him on his back

He rolled into town,
and pulled his cowboy hat down
Cause everyone knows a skinhead,
and skinheads aren't allowed
(skinheads aren't allowed)
in Mohawk Town

    General CommentMaybe this song is joking about real groups of people with mohawks that exclude skinheads. Like, they don't fit in if they don't have a mohawk.
    This song is great in any case.

    General Commentits the vandals, so this song is a joke
    its the old skin and punks fight, im glad this song is not serious, cuz i hate when bands worry tou much about skins and punks fighting at their shows...last saturday outside the show my mate broke a bottle n some skinhead started on him, i went to separate n i got punched...long story short, there will always be fights between punks and skinheads, so theres no reason on bands singing about uunity so much, this is why this song is cool
