Description
I pictured Timothy Oliphant smouldering round the streets of Deadwood while I wrote this, but it could apply to any situation where people need the help of a really tough guy. My favourite bit is the "Don't be long" pun.

Lyrics
The Last of the Great Crusaders

E B A E
Tell the truth, accept no lies

Take no halfway measures upfront
B
Make no compromise
E B A Dbm A
Don’t you act like you don’t belong
E B
You’re the last of the great crusaders
A E
For right against wrong
E B
You’re the last of the great crusaders
A E
For right against wrong

B A E B
There’s a town, and its name is Mudd
A E
And without your help soon the streets will be paved with blood
There’s a boy, who’s on a roll
He’s bemused and confused and abused
And he’s out of control

Dbm A
Save this boy, open the door
E B A E
There’s a woman in town who can show him what love is for
Save this town, you did it before,
In a town without justice or truth - you teach them the law

Chorus
There’s this guy, and his name is You
He’s not sure any more just what he’s supposed to do
Take this man, show him a vole
You’ll see, when you lose your heart, that you find your soul

Chorus

right against wrong!
nice song with a great message.
the guitar solo seemed a little to present in the mix, it commanded more
attention than the lead vocals even.
othe than that i enjoyed this song very much especially the 'loses his
heart' part.
Check out my latest song called You And Me

Ta very much. Point taken re the guitar break. I'll be tinkering with the mix and some of the other bits in the weeks to come. I always like to post stuff as soon as I reach a reasonable version. I won't be reposting though, unless I do such a splendiferous job that the world needs to know about it. (Not likely, as school starts again soon and I won't have the energy.)
For those keeping track, this it the first time that I've used an electric guitar as the main instrument. It's interesting learning what I can and cannot do with it.
