The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp Theme Song

video

Here are the full lyrics to that theme song from Hugh O’Brian’s 1955-1961 TV series:

Hold it, stranger!

I’ll tell you a story, a real true-life story,
A tale of the Western frontier.
The West, it was lawless,
But one man was flawless
And his is the story you’ll hear.

Wyatt Earp, Wyatt Earp,
Brave, courageous, and bold.
Long live his fame and long life his glory
And long may his story be told.

When I came to Kansas
To settle in Kansas,
I planned on a peaceable life.
Some goods and some chattel,
A few head of cattle,
A home and sweet lovin’ wife.

Now, I wasn’t partial
To bein’ the marshal,
But fate went and dealt me a hand.
While outlaws were lootin’
And killin’ and shootin’,
I knew that I must take a stand.

Oh, Wyatt Earp, Wyatt Earp,
Brave, courageous, and bold.
Long live his fame and long life his glory
And long may his story be told.

Well, he cleaned up the country,
The old Wild West country,
He made law and order prevail.
And none can deny it,
The legend of Wyatt
Forever will live on the trail.

Wyatt Earp, Wyatt Earp,
Brave, courageous, and bold.
Long live his fame and long life his glory
And long may his story be told.

Long may his story be told!
