> We rode for three long years, 'till Black Jack Pershing called it quitsn Jack wasn't 
I stole his fine spade bit
> It was tied upon his stallion, so I rode away on it
> To the wild Chihauhan desert, so dry you couldn't spit
> Tonight we ride, you bastards dare
> We'll kill the wild Apache, for the bounty on his hair
> Then we'll ride into Durango, climb up the whorehouse stairs
> Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride
> When I'm too damned old to sit a horse, I'll steal the Warden's car
> Break my ass out of this prison, leave my teeth there in a jar
> You don't need no teeth for kissin' galls, or smokin' cheap cigars
> I'll sleep with one eye open, 'neath God's celestial stars
> Tonight we rock, Tonight we roll
> We'll rob the Juarez liquor store, for the Rey Posada gold
> And if we drink ourselves to death, ain't that the cowboy way to go?
> Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride
> Tonight we fly, we're heading west
> Toward the mountains and the ocean, where the eagle makes it's nest
> And if our bones bleach on the desert, we'll consider we are blessed
> Tonight we ride, Tonight we ride,
