Two men have quarreled, so two men will fight
Oh, stop them before it's too late!
Lord, stop them from doing this terrible thing
for the sake of two women who wait.
One of us will weep tonight
One of us won't sleep tonight
One of us will walk forth tomorrow
[One of us/*out of] a happy life
[One of us/*into] a lonely life,
wearing the black dress of sorrow.
Out in the street now they reach for their guns
Please stop them before it's too late!
But a bullet rings out, and the pain can be felt
in the hearts of two women who wait.
Wearing the black dress of sorrow...
