[whistle]
[assorted cowboy calls]

ALRIGHT!

Well I shot a man in Louisville about one year ago
He was looking at me cock-eyed and I guess it goes to show,
Jack Daniels and a pistol can be a powerful enemy.
Especially when the whiskey inside me!

Gotta Rob, Tussle and Run from a Federal P.I.
I don't mind telling you that I shot the guard just to watch him die.
And he's still hot on my trail and my truck driving off the rail
Going South bound on the my way down 55

Well I'm prison bound, they're gonna send me down the river the end of the day
So I'm jumping in my truck and heading down
Ol' Mexico Way!

Well, In Salt Lake City, Utah there's a warrant on my head
For a girl in a bordello that someone left for dead
No, it wasn't me but I must admit that I was in town at the time,
drunk and shooting guns beneath the desert sky

Well I'm prison bound, they're gonna send me down the river the end of the day
So I'm jumping in my truck and heading down
Ol' Mexico Way!

I've got 500 miles until I'm free
When I hit the Rio Grande "John Law" can't do nothing to me
I've 500 dollars and 5 bullets in my gun
and If I have to, I'll unload everyone

[wicked harmonica solo!!!]

Well I'm prison bound, they're gonna send me down the river the end of the day
So I'm jumping in my truck and heading down
Ol' Mexico Way!
Ol' Mexico Way!
Ol' Mexico Way!
Ol' Mexico Way!
Ol' Mexico Way!

WOO HOOO
Holy Shit!
Call the ambulance! CALL EM'!
I need another beer.
I'm going home!
Did you guys bring your guns?
