The Lyrics

Back in the west, when men were hung
There lived a man ..they called, "Bastard Son"
He wore a gun and a big black hat,
His name was Matt...
Matt, Bastard Son

Folks called him illegitimate
And it made him mad as hell
His aim was to find his Daddy,
...This vengeful laddie,
He knew his mission well..

One day thru' a swingin' door saloon
Came walkin' in.. this old big bad goon
Matt shot him dead 'cuz he'd pulled a gun
Killed by his son, Matt...
Matt, Bastard Son

His mission's done, Matt...
Matt, Bastard Son

My version is much more funny, sensical, and fits the tune far better. This is amateurish and dumb, at best.

Out in the west , I kid you none There lived a man called Bastardson He had a gun and big black hat They called him Matt, Matt Bastardson He had no dad that could be found In fact, it could be anyone His mother liked to sleep around And so he's Matt, Matt Bastardson And then he went looking for “daddy” It drove him batty, but he kept right on He found him one day, but poor Matty His new found daddy wouldn't call him "son" Reunion wasn't very long When Matt said "Hi", Dad pulled his gun But Matt was fast, he shot him gone Our hero Matt, Matt Bastardson
