The Ballad o’ Lil Lemon

[Note – these lyrics have been slightly revised since they were originally recorded]

Upon a wave of ghostfire, she strode into the maze
With six barrels on her pistol and her trigger all ablaze
Vengeance for her father is what the stranger sought
But her bullets showed no mercy to the evil that she caught

CHORUS
Her name was Lil, Lil Lemon
She wore a coat as black as night
Outlaw, monster or demon
All fell before her badge’s blazin’ light

She rode into Perdition with her posse on her heel
Her Marshal’s badge was made o’ tin, her soul was made of steel
In seven days she beat some law and order into town
Then rode into the desert as the sun was goin’ down

In Shan Fan she made damn sure the Triads knew despair
Kang, Tam, Red Petals Su, all fell before her stare
She stood at the Battle o’ Heavenly Peak, as the city was afire
But no-ones chi was strong enough to stand before her ire

CHORUS

At last her father’s killer descended from the sky
An angel o’ Grimme named Garrett Black with murder in his eye
A thousand men had tried and failed to bring him to the ground
But Lemon was the one to finally put ‘im six feet down

INSTRUMENTAL

And when at last our hero fell, with a dagger in her back
She died a smile on her lips, as the ground began to crack
And the say that when the California moon is shinin’ bright
You may see her badge still shine on as she fights the hero’s fight

CHORUS

Her name was Lil, Lil Lemon
She wore a coat as black as night
Outlaw, monster or demon
All fell before her firm resolve
All fell before her pistol cold
All fell before her badge’s blazin’ light
