He lives by honour of the code of the West
That leaves him nothing but the badge on his chest
The Texas Ranger, that lone tall stranger
The man they call Lone Star

Across the Pegos in that small mining town
Sanchez the killer has just shot a man down
He shot none other, than the young brother of
The man they call Lone Star

A hundred miles across the desert
Under the burning sun
As Sanchez rode that dusty trail
His second man was his gun

It was high noon by the Devil's Pass
The sweat was pouring off their brows
The pistols drawn and the six-shooters blast
And Sanchez sends another man to Boot Hell now

The dust settled and the folks gathered 'round
Around the body that lay dead on the ground
Above his head that tombstone read:
"The man they call Lone Star"
