He pauses at the city's edge Of hellfire and of stone He summons up the devil there To give him courage of his own He'll free the sinners of deceit They'll hear his name and run His justice is his own reward Measured out beneath the sun "I am the law and I am the King I am the wisdom, listen to me sing" And my name's on the gun Work is just begun The boy with the gun
