Man in Red
Gather around me my good friends 'cause I got a tale to tell
About a man who shot me once, and this wound still feels like hell

I was riding high after a wild night, and I saw a man in red
And I told him hey, you're in my way, and he said you're good as dead

He was mean, part machine, his shotgun thunder burst
His lead hit home, I hit the dirt, even though I drew first

Now He'd won the gunplay, all in fair play, but I had to know
Why this man wore crimson, red from head to toe

Now I was bleeding out, and the man in red, said boy you listen close
And I'll tell youm the genesis of the color of my choice

He said
When I was young, my daddy took me to a bullring far from town
To man me up and make me tough, so I'd never back down

I saw the bull's eyes after he saw the cape blood red
I knew right then, the hue for which I'd been born and bred

So heed my warning, avoid this man, good night and so long
You can forget about the singer, but don't forget the song
Man in Red

This song is from the album When We're Together.
