Some folks drink and some folks smoke,
Some folks love and some folks don't;
Some folks laugh and some folks frown,
Some folks here that'll gun you down.

Goodbye, John,
Six white horses come to take you home;
Goodbye, John,
Took you away before you sang your song.

Some preach wrong and some preach right,
Some preach love and some preach fight;
Takes every kind to make the world go 'round,
Takes only one to gun you down.

Goodbye, Martin,
Six white horses come to take you home;
Goodbye, Reverend,
Took you away before you sang your song.

Some people stick pretty close to home,
Others are born with an urge to roam;
Welcome, welcome to our town,
Hope nobody tried to gun you down.

Goodbye, Bobby,
Six white horses come to take you home;
Goodbye, Robert,
Took you away before you sang your song.

Goodbye, John,
Goodbye, Martin,
Goodbye, Bobby,
They took you away before you sang your song.

Originally recorded in 1969 by Tommy Cash. Probably his best-known recording, having reached #4 on the Billboard country charts and #79 on the Billboard Hot 100, the only song of his to make the pop charts. It made it all the way to number one on RPM Magazine's Canadian country chart.

This variant recorded by Dick Nolan (Country With Marlene Beaudry, trk#7, 1969 LP, Arc Sound Ltd, Toronto, Ontario, recorded at Bay Studios, Toronto, under the direction of Ben Weatherby); and (Newfoundland Songbook, Volume 5, trk#14, 2008 CD, Unidisc Music Inc, Pointe-Claire, Quebec).
