Theme Song Lyrics submitted
by Dan Coli, Richmond, Virginia, USA (danlee01@aol.com)

''JIM BOWIE, JIM BOWIE,
HE WAS A BOLD ADVENTURIN' MAN,
JIM BOWIE, JIM BOWIE,
BATTLED FOR RIGHTS WITH A POWERFUL HAND,
HIS BLADE WAS TEMPERED AND SO WAS HE,
INDESTRUCTABLE STEEL WAS HE,
JIM BOWIE, JIM BOWIE,
HE WAS A FIGHTER, A FEARLESS AND MIGHTY
ADVENTURIN' MAN.''
