The Colt Forty-Five

A legend was born one hot Texas night
when a young man was called to the street for a fight
It started over some words that were said
and ended in the street with a man cold and dead
The rest of his life he’ll spend on the run
to spare himself from another man’s gun
The Colt Forty-Five that smoked in his hand
would soon become famous throughout the land
His name would be echoed from town to town
and his reputation would follow where e’er he’s bound
Every Sheriff, every Marshall from Dodge to Cheyenne
will try to take the life of this man
His life will be ended before the first winter snow
outgunned by a man from the town of Laredo
The gunfighter is dead, but the legend lives on
while his Colt Forty-Five rusts in the ground
While in another town not far away
another young man will a man slay
With a Colt Forty-Five in his hand he will run
hiding and fighting until his life is done.

About Emma Morgaine Croft

I have been called many things on my journey, Professor, White Wolf, Rainbow Warrior and Spirit Walker. I had a blog on for a number of years. I think the last post was when Papa passed back in 2012. I had also written for World Wide Hippies online mag for a year or so and even won a Golden Note for online writing. I got burned out writing and decided to stop for a bit. The only writing I did was comments on things I shared on Facebook. Unfortunately, that often got into a lot of angry and ugly talk. I try to maintain my cool, but there are just some unreasonable people out there. I found it emotionally and spiritually draining. I saw my niece's blog on here and thought that maybe it was time to resurrect Thoughts On A Cloudy Day. These are my thoughts and meanderings. You can accept them or walk away. I hope that in some way, these thoughts can spark other thoughts and sharing by people around the world. My dream is to make the world a better place for all people. My heart to your heart, one hear, one spirit.
