The first shot missed him, a mile away
The last shot got him, so they say
Oh, the last shot got him
Oh, the last shot got him

She cooked good biscuits, so they say
...
Oh, she cooked good biscuits, so they say
...

Oh, She got good business, so they say
She got good business, so they say
She got good business
Oh, she got good business

I wanna trade with you, so they say
I wanna trade with you, so they say
Well, wanna trade with you
...

Oh you got good business, so they say
You got good business, so they say
You got good business
Oh, you got good business

There is also a song called “The Last Shot Got Him” by Cecil Mack and Chris Smith with
other lyrics than the version by John Hurt. “The first shot missed him by a nose, and the
shot tore right through his clothes”. Cecil Mack and Chris Smith also tells about the 
forth and fifth shot.
