The Good, The Bad And The Ugly


Lyrics

"The Good, The Bad And The Ugly"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

The man with no name was a bounty hunter by trade

He rescued Tuco but only for the reward

They split the money, ‘till he learned Bill Carson’s secret

Then they set out through the civil war


Tuco knew the cemetery, Blondie knew the grave

Angel Eyes lost the standoff cold

Blondie strung up Tuco and rode off with his share

But then he turned and shot the rope

The good, the bad, the ugly, and the gold


Angel Eyes was ruthless, he killed anyone for fun

He tortured Tuco to learn the tombstone name

He and Blondie rode off for an equal share

But he didn’t know that Tuco would escape


Tuco knew the cemetery, Blondie knew the grave

Angel Eyes lost the standoff cold

Blondie strung up Tuco and rode off with his share

But then he turned and shot the rope

The good, the bad, the ugly, and the gold


Tuco was a bandit wanted dead or alive 

He and Blondie turned on Angel Eyes

He tortured Blondie, left him in the desert for dead

But he was in for a big surprise


Tuco knew the cemetery, Blondie knew the grave

Angel Eyes lost the standoff cold

Blondie strung up Tuco and rode off with his share

But then he turned and shot the rope

The good, the bad, the ugly, and the gold


The good, the bad, the ugly, and the gold

Brief Description

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly started as just an instrumental song, if I'm remembering correctly, and I just really liked the acoustic guitar solo part I'd come up with.  It gave me a feeling of something that would be in the soundtrack of a western movie.  So, then I thought I'd try to come up with some lyrics for it, and I thought of one of my favorite Clint Eastwood movies - the spaghetti western of the same name.  I basically summarized the plot and made it fit.  Although it comes nowhere close to being as great as the actual movie soundtrack to that film, it's a neat song by itself that I am pleased with.
