Duel At Dawn

Sarah May, Sarah May, how many tears will you shed?
You told Yankee Joe you would wait for him
That’s the same thing you told to Johnny Red

The war was over between the states and the boys were homeward bound
When Johnny Red met Yankee Joe on the road to Memphistown
Said Johnny Red to Yankee Joe, “How I’ve waited for this day
We’re gonna fight a duel at dawn for the love of Sarah May!”

Sarah May, Sarah May, how many tears will you shed?
You told Yankee Joe that you loved him so
That’s the same thing you told to Johnny Red

They both showed up at the break of day
Yankee Joe said, “Lеt’s begin”
And then they shook еach other’s hand
And they said, “May the best man win”

The shots rang out and filled the air
And scared all the birds away
What fools they were to duel at dawn for the love of Sarah May

Sarah May, Sarah May, how many tears, Sarah May?
Johnny and Joe, they didn’t know
That they died on your wedding day
Yes, they died on your wedding day
Yes, they died on your wedding day
