No, not that one. The ballad of the gunfighter song, done by Lorne Greene. It charted pretty high on the pop charts as I recall; I thought it pretty corny when I was a teen. But seeing this live performance, I had to admit that Lorne Greene was pretty affecting acting this song.

I love the story songs, I find them wonderfully cathartic. Thanks for this, I do remember the song/story.
There’s a hilarious Alan Sherman parody that was done on the same television show —using the same set!—you might enjoy:
This song is a take off from “BIG BAD JOHN” by Jimmy Dean 1961, BUT Alan Sherman gives the best rendition.
Thanks, Eddie. Folks can see the Alan Sherman version in the comment above yours.
