Song #9: "Final Stand"

My latest song recounts the last words of a desperado. Here is the tune (.mp3), the sheet music (.pdf) and me singing the song, poorly (.wav). The full lyrics are below (not too meaningful without the music). Midi file available upon request. Both the tune and the words are my own original work.

Final Stand
I got two shots left in my gun.
It's the end, my last setting sun.
It's just me alone again,
My friend by my side.
I've got no place left now to run.

I know I'm right.
Come hold me now.
I'll stay and fight.
But I don't know how.
I'm not afraid.
Oh, yes I am.
Please take my hand.
My final stand.

We will all become what we choose.
If you want something, pay your dues.
It's just me the fool again,
Back against the wall.
I've got nothing left now to lose.

I know I'm right.
Come hold me now.
I'll stay and fight.
But I don't know how.
I'm not afraid.
Oh, yes I am.
Please take my hand.
My final stand.

I am not alone.
I can go back home,
To my cottage there in the glen.
In reality, it's my fantasy
That we all go home in the end.

I hope my life
Was not in vain.
Enduring Strife,
Now I feel no pain.
See who I am,
No what I've done.
Please lead me on,
My Kingdom come.

Now the law won't take me alive.
I did what I did to survive.
And no chains will hold me down
As long as I breathe.
I've got no choice left but to leave.

I've got one shot left in my gun.
