  • Death be my mistress, guns be my wife
    Breath is my witness and roads are my life
    Just give my future's clean as a knife
    Far on the way from L.A.

    The sun heats the saddle, sand in my hair
    Looking for water and there's sweat everywhere
    Know that I'm nearer I smell damp air
    I ain't tasted coffee for days

    When the leaves are down I'll be southward bound
    Hunters hunt the outsider.
    When the wind grows cold, when the sun grows old,
    Nothing holds the outsider

    Just killed a man in a town called Nightfall
    Damned if I can't remember it all
    My hand it was shaking but his talk it was tall
    I paid for the funeral crew
    And it seems like I never reach Mexico
    They're heading me off every place that I go
    I'm sick of the fact that I've got to lay low
    What else can an outsider do

    I know they're near to me, I don't have to see
    Just let me be the outsider
    They ain't far behind, they're always on my mind
    They won't find the outsider
    The outsider

    When the leaves are down I'll be southward bound
    Hunter's haunt the outsider.
    When the wind grows cold, when the sun grows old,
    Nothing holds the outsider
    The outsider. The outsider.
