The Ballad of Greedo

I walked into the Cantina a stranger
Lookin’ for to get some peace of mind
I did not think there would be any danger
From the bounty inside that I would find
From the bounty inside that I would find

His name was Han, you know he used to smuggle
He lost some goods from old Jabba the Hutt
He did it so he would not get in trouble
Yeah he did it just to save his own butt
He did it just to save his own butt

Wranglers and bounty hunters
Are standing in line
It seems that good help these days
Is so hard to find
But I’ll rise above ’em
Yeah, I’m earnin’ my dime
I wanna be the one to bring him in
I wanna be the one to score that big win
Greedo’s name will be known soon

I sat him down, told him I’d love to kill him
In hindsight now, perhaps that was too strong
He shot me dead, yet somehow I’m the villain
And Han’s the hero–now don’t that seem so wrong?
They call him hero–now don’t that seem so wrong?

And now no one in the building
Even wiped their eye
It seems that good folks these days
Is so hard to find
And now they are saying
The fault was all mine
No I ain’t the one who shot first
I didn’t shoot at all, and know what’s worse?
Greedo’s name will be gone soon
