VERSE 1
Well, don’t go to the county farm
Conditions there are raw
The boss has just gone raving mad
He just killed three men with a saw
CHORUS
Have you seen him?
Well, if you do
Tell him, “Keep on keeping on”
Tell him, “Keep on moving on”
Tell him, “Get on, get along”
VERSE 2
Well, the boss, he is a hunted man
And I wonder how he feels
His boss has promised that
He’d be killed And to be forever at his heels
REPEAT CHORUS
VERSE 3
Well, Diamond Joe is his name
He’s the meanest man alive
When Joe finally met his boss
Well, he was not the one to die
I hear he’s in Montana
Living on some rancho land
If you see him, please tell him
That I’m the better man
Oh, tell him, I’ll get him
Tell him, I’ll get him
Tell him, I’ll get him
Tell him, I’ll get him
Shoot him down
Shoot him down, down, down
Shoot him down, down, down
Well, don’t go to the county farm
Conditions there are raw
The boss has just gone raving mad
He just killed three men with a saw
REPEAT CHORUS
