Lyrics:We can share the women
We can share the wine
We can share what we got of yours
'Cause
we done shared all of mine

Keep a rolling
Just a mile to go
Keep on rolling, my
old buddy
You're moving much too slow


I just jumped the watchman
Right
outside the fence
Took his ring, four bucks in change
Now ain't that heaven
sent?


Hurts my ears to listen, Shannon
Burns my eyes to see
Cut down a
man in cold blood, Shannon
Might as well be me


We used to play for
silver
Now we play for life
One's for sport and one's for blood
At the point of a
knife
Now the die is shaken
Now the die must fall
There ain't a winner in this
game
Who don't go home with all
Not with all...


Leaving Texas
Fourth
day of July
Sun so hot, clouds so low
The eagles filled the sky


Catch the
Detroit Lightning
Out of Santa Fe
Great Northern out of Cheyenne
From sea to shining
sea


Gotta get to Tulsa
First train we can ride
Got to settle one old
score
And one small point of pride...


Ain't no place a man can hide,
Shannon
Keep him from the sun
Ain't no bed will give us rest, man,
You keep us on the
run


Jack Straw from Wichita
Cut his buddy down
Dug for him a shallow
grave
And layed his body down


Half a mile from Tucson
By the morning
light
One man gone and another to go
My old buddy you're moving much too
slow


We can share the women
we can share the wine
