“Ballad of a Well Known Gun” is the opening track from Elton John’s loose-concept album from 1970, Tumbleweed Connection. The song’s bluesy account of a weary fugitive coming to grips with his inevitable capture introduces the album’s ongoing theme of perspectives from the American Wild West.
When Elton and Bernie Taupin first met Bob Dylan, on a staircase at the Fillmore East shortly after Tumbleweed Connection’s release, Dylan made a point to express that he “really liked the lyrics to ‘Ballad of a Well-Known Gun.”
John performing “Ballad of a Well-Known Gun” at his 60th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden. Until then the song had not been performed live since 1971.
