music by Cyril J. Mockridge and lyrics by Bill Olafson
Stranger ride carefully
Stay 'way from your gun.
There's danger in Laramie for men on the run.
Your gray eyes shift warily,
There's no room here for you.
Just stay wise, this is Laramie
Keep traveling on through.
Faster guns than yours have made the foolish play
The next time that you draw may be the last.
We're a peaceful town; we aim to stay that way.
Our justice isn't fancy but it's fast.
