Subject: Lyr Req: Tombstone...Way Out In AZ by Johnny Cash
From: GUEST

I'm trying to find the lyrics to the song Johnny Cash recorded about Tombstone, Arizona

Way out in Arizona just south of Tucson
Where tumbleweeds tumble in search of a home
There's a town they call Tombston where the brave me have died
They lived by a six gun, by a six gun they died

BALLAD OF BOOT HILL
Words and music by Carl Perkins
© '59 Hill & Range Songs
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Johnny Cash Sings the Ballads of the True West" (1965)

(Spoken:) Here lies Les Moore.
Four slugs from a .44
No Les no more.

1. Out in Arizona just south of Tucson,
Where tumbleweeds tumble in search of a home,
There's a town they call Tombstone where the brave never cry.
They live by a sixgun; by a sixgun, they die.

2. It's been a long time now since the town was a boom.
The jailhouse is empty; so's the Palace Saloon.
Just one look will tell you that this town was real.
A secluded old dirt road leads up to Boot Hill.

3. Walk up to the fence there and look at the view.
That's where they were hanged, eighteen eighty-two.
It's easy to see where the brave men have died.
Rope marks on the oak tree are now petrified.

4. At night when the moon shines so far away,
It gets mighty lonesome lookin' down on their grave.
There lies Billy Clanton; never wanted to kill,
But he's there with the guilty way up on Boot Hill. (Boot Hill)

While it was a pleasure to help, FYI, I found it with a google of

Where tumbleweeds tumble in search of a home

NO quotation marks.

I heard the song years ago, likely Cash singing it, but thanks for starting the thread, because I had no idea Perkins wrote it. Live and learn.

I was moved by Casey Terfertiller's biography and the two big Wyatt Earp films in the 90's, to write a song about Wyatt Earp.

I was very honoured that they played it on Wyatt's birthday in his birthplace in Monmouth Illinois. Also the Tombstone Chamber of commerce said that that they might use it for their western Film Festival, but I never heard anything more about it.

if you'd be interested brucie I could send you a copy.

Big Al, this place is down now. When it's running I will message my e-mail. I would love to see that song. Must have impressed those folks regardless of the end result. I'm looking forward to it.

Bruce

That was me above too. Forgot to put my name in.
