                                                Five Brothers
 

                Five brothers who left Arkansas
                Set out to find the gambler
                Who murdered their pa
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Gotta find the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans

                They heard of him in Houston
                And his trail was leadin' west
                He'd left there many months ago
                And so they couldn't rest
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Gotta find the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans
                New Orleans

                The sun was hot as fire
                And the nights were cold as steel
                Hate was strong and youth was wild
                And so they couldn't feel
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Gotta find the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans

                His trail led to the Badlands
                And the desert promised death
                The gambler's odds were different now
                He treasured every breath
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Close behind the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans
                New Orleans

                When first they saw the killer
                He was by the waterhole
                Five rifles rang out through the night
                They killed the gambler cold
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Finally got the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans

                The desert is their keeper now
                For this a traveler said
                That poison lived within the hole
                Now six of them are dead
                Five brothers and three in their teens
                Lay beside the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans
                Lay beside the man
                Who killed their pa in New Orleans
