Story Behind the Song

I wrote a sequel to Pancho and Lefty by Townes Van Zandt.

Lyrics

Ohio's getting cold, Mexico is hot
An old man steps out of his door
Grabs the paper, as he stares up and the clouds
Wishing things could be like they were before

Chorus
He used to be an outlaw
Saddle up and they would ride
He used to be an outlaw
But then he left it all behind


With every sun rise, he stares at his reflection
And Wonder's who's staring back at me.
Dreadin the future, as he's longing for the past
He only finds it in his dreams.

So many memories (stories) that he longs to re-live
Aint nothing like you see on the silver screen
Riding hard, living fast as polished steel
Now he's sitting here


He has a nightmare of all those federales
And Leaving his best friend in the dust
But he knew their secrets and had all the money
So he ran off to the belt of rust
