Theme Song Lyrics
("The Ballad of Paladin" sung by Johnny Western )

Have Gun Will Travel reads the card of a man.
A knight without armor in a savage land.

His fast gun for hire head`s the calling wind.
A soldier of fortune is the man called Paladin.

Paladin, Paladin
Where do you roam?
Paladin, Paladin,
Far, far from home.

He travels onto wherever he must.
A chest knight of silver is his badge of trust.
There are campfire lanterns that the flames men spears.
Of the man with the gun of the man called Paladin.

Paladin, Paladin
Where do you roam?
Paladin, Paladin,
Far, far from home.

Far from home,
Far from home
