Can you fill in the missing lyrics to the Have Gun – Will Travel theme song?

It’s rare for a TV theme song to be used only during the end credits like “The Ballad of Paladin” from Have Gun – Will Travel. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less famous, or catchy, than other Western refrains. Performed by country singer Johnny Western for the show, a twangy instrumental version from guitarist Duane Eddy peaked at number 33 on the Billboard charts in 1962. Gordie and his friends couldn’t get the tune out of their heads while walking along the train tracks in Stand By Me.

A great roll model for the youth of today, if they will watch the show there is always a lesson to be learned.

The seond verse, though never on TV was on the 45RPM record and is now available on CD:
He travels on to where ever he must
A chess knight of silver is his badge of trust
There are campfire legends that the plainsmen spin
Of the man with the gun, of the man called Paladin
