The Legend of Covid the Kid

From a town known as

        Every town you’ve heard of

Rode a bug with a six gun in his hand

And his daring life of crime made him a virus in his time

East and West of the Rio Grande

Well he started on a ship out in Seattle

In the pocket of a lung, a crown he hid

And his age, and his size took everybody by surprise and

The word spread of Covid the Kid

Well he always traveled heavy

No, he never rode alone

And he soon put many older plagues to shame

And he never had a sweetheart

And he never had a home

Now the cowboy and the rancher know his name

Well, he killed his way from Utah to Oklahoma

And the tests could just not seem to track him down

And it served his legend well, for the folks they love to tell about

When Covid the Kid came to town

Well one cold day a vaccine captured Covid

And a Doc said, “string him up” for what he did

And the cowboys and their kin, like the sea came pouring in to watch

The hangin’ of Covid the Kid

Well he always traveled heavy

No, he never rode alone

And he soon put many older plagues to shame

And never had a sweetheart, but he finally found a home

Underneath the Boot Hill grave that bears his name

From a town known as Shaker Heights Ohio

Rode a boy with a six pack in his hand

And his daring life of crime made him a legend in his time

East and West of the Rio Grande
