I was born with a set of horns
In Calico, in a thunderstorm
I left mother, and I wonder if she minds,
the trouble that I find.
I sip my whiskey and my wine
And I figure if I live past 50 I'll be fine.
I talk to God While I roam
So maybe one day the man will take me home,,

Before you die, you seek the river.
Eye to Eye, with your forgiver
He'll touch your soul.
Rushing cold.
So if it don't go and make you Shiver X 4

I spent my days on the range
Gambling for a little bit of change.
One day I let my pistol go and whistle like a missle
towards the head of some prick, he tried to trick for my bread
And I paint the parlor red.
And I haven't been right since I left him full of leadI I know it seems wrong
but I can't sit and pant, I got to keep rolling on


I lost my soul for a trunk of gold
bullet holes from a thunder bolt
he brought an arrow but he quarelled with a man
with a shotgun barrel in his hand.
The charges wouldn't stand
Til the preacher and the sheriff say he was a good man
If they never learn the truth,
I really won't mind if I die by the noose.
