Hmmm...

High Sheriff (Dead or Alive)

The high sherriff wrote me a letter (2x)
"Come up and see me, dead or alive." (2x)

He said he would pay expenses * (2x)
Dead or alive, yes, sir! (2x)

He said he would clothe and feed me. (2x)
Dead or alive, yes, sir! (2x)

He even sent me my picture (2x)
How do I look, boys, dead or alive (2x)

I don't like your hard-rock hotel (2x)
Dead or alive, no, sir! (2x)

The high sherriff wrote me a letter (2x)
"Come up and see me, dead or alive." (2x)

It's a hard road, dead or alive! (4x)
