Paladin's Calling Card - The business card seen on the western adventure HAVE GUN WILL  TRAVEL/CBS/1957-63.

Paladin Calling Card

The card was used by Paladin (Richard Boone), a former Army officer turned professional gun for hire who lived at the posh Hotel Carlton in downtown San Francisco.

Paladin's normal routine was to look for clients by perusing the various newspapers to which he subscribed. When he read a story about someone with a potential need for his services, he sent them his card, along with a clipping of the story. Paladin's standard fee was $1000.

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 heeds 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 on to wherever 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.

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

Far from home,
Far from home.
