Film Dialogue in the Lyrics of Bob Dylan

The Gunfighter (1950)





Dir: Henry King.
Screenplay: William Bowers, Andre De Toth, Nunnally Johnson  & William Sellers.
Starring: Gregory Peck & Helen Westcott.

Well, there was this movie I seen one time,
About a man riding 'cross the desert and it starred Gregory Peck.
He was shot down by a hungry kid trying to make a name for himself.
The townspeople wanted to crush that kid down and string him up by the neck.

Well, the marshal, now he beat that kid to a bloody pulp
as the dying gunfighter lay in the sun and gasped for his last breath.
Turn him loose, let him go, let him say he outdrew me fair and square,
I want him to feel what it's like to every moment face his death.

"Brownsville Girl" (Co-written with Sam Shepard)

"Got My Mind Made Up." (Dialogue spoken four times in the film).

Well, if you don't want to see me,
Look the other way.
You don't have to feed me,
I ain't your dog that's gone astray.
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
I got my mind made up
