Riding east across the western plains

Back in the saddle again, hands on the reins

Looking to the future like a light that shined

Knowin’ I was yours and you were mine.

Uh uh hunh, Oh yeah…

Robbin’ banks with 45’s like Jesse James

Love like ours, forever true, just can’t be feigned

Wild as the West, oh no, we can’t be tamed

On the trail of Fortune and of Fame

Years passed by, we lived a life of crime

Guess I shoulda known that we’d run out of time

Signs were everywhere but I could not see

Blind and deaf and dumb as a man could be

Uh uh hunh, Oh yeah…

Then the dark-haired stranger joined our outlaw band

Fun and fast and fearless like some hoodoo man

First he turned your head and then he took your hand

You both lit out across the Rio Grande.

Lying still as death on barren ground
Searchin’ for a reason that can’t be found.

Shot through the heart and left for dead
Thinkin’ ‘bout all the things you said.

Uh uh hunh, Oh yeah…

Never had the slightest notion you’d be untrue

That was the one thing I thought you’d never do

But Señor el Diablo knows a trick or two

He worked his charms and ended up with you.
