Closing Ballad

Lyrics by Josh Mandel & Al Lowe
Music by Al Lowe

Now the whole town still remembers
How the old schoolhouse was blown to embers
Though Miss Primm's body was never, ever found.
Since the sheriff and the banker
Made the folks of Coarsegold red with anger,
They tarred and feathered and ran 'em out of town.

And Srini? He became an ordinary Rexall tepee shaman
Down on the Pecos, where Injun hearts still burn.
While the townsfolk, safe from danger
Talk about that silver-earlobed stranger:
Where did he come from?
And when will he return?

Pharkas, Freddy Pharkas.
Black gold fields were his legacy.
Freddy Pharkas, Freddy Pharkas.
Peerless, earless, and free!
