LILY LANGTRY (Scott Holtzman / Vivian Holtzman / Nick Woods) The New Christy Minstrels - 1964 In Texas where there is a town That's known by all the world around The town where Lily came And Langtry is its name The law it was Judge Roy Bean Who black as often dirty mean The 'angin' Judge's name His 'angin' tree is shame He loved Lily Langtry Lovely Lily Langtry Beautiful Miss Lily Lily Langtry was 'er name Oh, 'ow he longed to meet her Ready he was to greet her Softly Lily's face His ev'ry warning grace One day a coack come ridin' 'Igh-steppin' stallions guidin' At the stroke o' noon It stopped at his saloon Out stepped Lily Langtry Lovely Lily Langtry Beautiful Miss Lily Lily Langtry was 'er name Lily smiled at him so sweetly Kissed his cheek so neatly Back she quickly swept When up Joe Rio stepped The drunken gunman's eyes were gleamin' Last 'e 'eard was Lily's screamin' Fast the Judge's law But faster still his draw All for Lily Langtry Lovely Lily Langtry Beautiful Miss Lily Lily Langtry was 'er name (Instrumental Break) In Langtry when they tell the story Speak of his day of glory When Miss Lily came They say he spoke her name On the day that 'e lay dyin' Softly 'is lips were sighin' Better to die like this Knowin' the Lily's kiss He loved Lily Langtry Lovely Lily Langtry Beautiful Miss Lily Lily Langtry was 'er name (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
