song lyric about Doc Holiday

 

When the Doctor Was In

 

They say tuberculosis 

Sent that Georgia doctor off,

So no one felt too good about

The dentist with a cough,

He stormed his way through Texas

Like an icy winter rain,

Then blew across to Tombstone

On a westbound hurricane.

 

When the doctor was in

And his treatment had begun,

He'd start in pulling teeth

Or pulling out his gun,

No one his pistol treated

Ever had to come again,

The side effects were lasting

When the doctor was in.

 

A cool day in October

Started just like all the rest,

Until the call of history

Would put him to the test,

He slowly strolled down Freemont

While the Earps walked by his side,

As lawmen and the lawless

were preparing to collide.

 

The Clantons and McLaurys helped

Write history that day,

About a deadly doctor

With the name of Holiday.

 

When the doctor was in

And his treatment had begun,

He'd start in pulling teeth

Or pulling out his gun,

No one his pistol treated

Ever had to come again,

The side effects were lasting

When the doctor was in.
