The Charlie Daniels Band Even Up The Score Lyrics

Last updated: 06/06/2012 11:00:00 AM

Like a serpent in the sand
Coiled up to strike you when your back is turned
He's an evil man
Wicked since the day that he was born
When the morning comes
I'll meet him in the street and try to gun him down
He took your life away
What a dark bitter day
I held her in my arms and I swore
I'd even up the score

The sun is in my eyes
Sweat is on my face and I can hardly stand
Fear is in my heart
Telling me to turn and run away
A killer all his life
He looms before me like a demon dark and cold
But I made you a vow
And I won't break it now
I'll die here if that's what's in store
Or even up the score

Face to face we stand in silence now
Not one whisper in the crowd
Like in a dream I watch his hand float down
I hear the shots ring out he's lying dead upon the ground

He took your life away
What a dark bitter day
I held her in my arms and I swore
I'd even up the score
Even up the score
