On the outskirts of town

Jed could hear the familiar piano

The saloon was beginning to come alive

People in the desert are few and mean

there might be a higher caliber than that of pistols.

Gambling in Boom Town drew the wildest of card.

The liars and cheats might run on the bottom.

A code of integrity ruled the professional and seasoned gambler

Young men had escaped the south or the farm

The draw of deck and smile of the saloon gals

attracted them to Boom Town.

Those that were good or lucky enough

moved onto San Fran to climb the ladder

Boom Town was a high step in the stairs of success

or the purchase of one last bottle before ending it all.
