Lyrics by Christopher Seymore
Music by Son of Bitch

Évariste

Laid in a pine box all knotted and clean
They put my papa for his noble deeds
He shot my daddy down
Shot my daddy down

Now I know what I must go do
I must die so brave, I must die so true
He shot my daddy down
Shot my daddy down, down, down

I ride out to meet him with my gun and my smile
Sing hallelujah, it’s my time now, it’s my time now
I’ll not go untouched girl for I wish to die a man, oh yes
I ride out to meet him with my gun now and my smile

Pearl handeled Peace Maker strapped to my side
Oh in the mornin’ I saddle and ride
He shot my daddy down
Shot my daddy down

Come on now darlin’ make me understand
Don’t my to bits go and make me a man
He shot my daddy down
Shot my daddy down, down, down

I ride out to meet him with my gun and my smile
Sing hallelujah, it’s my time now, it’s my time now
I’ll not go untouched girl for I wish to die a man, oh yes
I ride out to meet him with my gun now and my smile
