about

Whew! It's 'bout time for a true cowboy ballad. Be warned, this sucker is long. The inspiration for this one came after giving a lot of thought to the idea that wizards and the old west both condone and even encouraged dueling, and that the Elder Wand certainly must have had a long and sordid history (even ignoring the parts we know).

Regardless, enjoy!

lyrics

They say it came from death itself
Bartered for a life
But anyone who ever owned it
Only met with strife

wizards will come from miles around
The strongest and the least
You'll have to cut everyone of them down
Never get no peace

*Though you try to keep it silent
That ol' wand just won't be still
If you want it come and get it
But you'd better be prepared to kill*

I had a lover long ago
To whom I gave my heart
He told me there was just one thing
That could keep us apart

"What one thing could ever be
Greater than the stars?"
He said it was a thing of death
And that it would mean ours

*chorus*

Well I told him straight he would have to choose
'Tween that wand and me
He said it's something you just can't give up
And so he set me free

Well I turned away and in my heart
Like a woman scorned I felt
And a fire lit within my soul
And I knew I'd give him hell

*chorus*

Well I turned back for a final kiss
With which to say goodbye...
I'm sure he never saw it comin
And now that wand is mine

And so now I'm left to roam this land
My soul's been stained blood red
I'll give you one shot to take this wand
And you can claim it when I'm dead
