Lyrics of Pancho and Lefty

Livin' on the road my friend is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath as hard as kerosene
Weren't your momma's only boy but her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams
Pancho was a bandit boy
His horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dyin' words
But that's the way it goes
And all the Federales say they could've had him any day
And all the Federales say they could've had him any day
They only let him slip away
Out of kindness I suppose
Suppose
Lefty he can't sing the blues all night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south ended up in Lefty's mouth
The day they laid poor Pancho low
Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go
There ain't nobody knows
And all the Federales say they could've had him any day
And all the Federales say they could've had him any day
We only let him slip away
Out of kindness I suppose
The boys tell how Pancho fell and Lefty's livin' in cheap hotels
The desert's quiet
Cleveland's cold and so the story ends
We're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true
But save a few for Lefty too
But save a few for Lefty too
He only did what he had to do and now he's growing old
They only let him go so long out of kindness I suppose
A few grey Federales say they could have had him any day
They only let him go so long out of kindness I suppose out of kindness I suppose
