Liner Notes: 

Another one earlier not recorded. As you can hear I'm now in a hurry.

Lyrics: 

STILL STAND ON YOUR FEET

Go out into the duel
Draw fast, but don’t miss
Avoid picking that jewel
Avoid that ruby red kiss

Shootin it out in the sunshine
Shootin it out in the rain or the sleet
Who of you will by nightfall
Still stand on your feet?

Step out into the duel
Walk coldly to kill
Keep your eye sharp and cruel
Keep your hand and heart still

Squint in the sunshine
Take aim in the rain or the sleet
Pray to God that by nightfall
You still stand on your feet

Go out to the duel
Be proud it’s your turn
To bring all your fuel
Out there and burn

Firing it out in the sunshine
Firing it out in that sleet
Hope that in the ashes of nightfall
You still stand on your feet



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Sounds like the low string is rattling a bit but it adds to the effect when you’re really hitting it. Very nice performance and solid lyrics

It's a great cowboy trails song! You're chordal approach is a good change off from what it may otherwise be, again, "so to speak". Can't get into to much detail here. There's a number of ways to play it.
Again, great work.
