COMANCHEROS, THE (Tillman Franks - - written for the 1961 film "The Comancheros", but not used) Claude King - 1961 Lonnie Donegan - 1962 Teresa Brewer - 1966 Paul Regret of New Orleans A fast man with a gun Didn't wanta go, but he had to run When he shot down the Judge's son Yes, he shot Judge Cobain's son With the dark of night he left that town Never to return again With a one-way ticket at the end of the line He was told by a stranger man The Comancheros have taken this town And then the Comancheros came a-ridin' through the night Stealin' and a-killin', takin' ev'rything in sight Nothin' left behind, but the blood and the sand The Comancheros have taken this land The Comancheros have taken this land I'd cover ev'ry inch of the ground where I stand Outside before I'd run I'm not afraid of any living man And here I'll make my stand With a gun I'll make my stand He rode into the Comancheros' town Like a wild man on the run Before he'd leave, they would all be dead They'd die by his blazin' gun They'd die by his blazin' gun And then the Comancheros came a-ridin' through the night Stealin' and a-killin', takin' ev'rything in sight Nothin' left behind, but the blood and the sand The Comancheros have taken this land The Comancheros have taken this land The Comancheros have taken this land The Comancheros have taken this land The Comancheros ...........
