lyrics

Through Townes with flying shoes
Not waiting around to die
Colorado bound he set out running
Riding on that white freightline

He made some cash he was haggard
A Highwayman though mama tried
He had that rambling white line fever
The cocaine blues and hungry eyes

Down the heartworn highways
You’re still bound to miss someone
Who do you love little darling
cos' this man is on the run

His lonesome Colorado girl
Her cheating heart cried that day
He shed his tears five feet and rising
Flooded out the lost highway

With trouble in mind
The bottle let him down
The lovesick blues and a cold cold heart
He heard that lonesome whistle sound

In the city of New Orleans
Sunday morning coming down
From swinging doors and dead flowers
His momma said don't take your guns to town

He headed back to Colorado
Asked his lover why baby why
With a sinking heart he raised his pistol
He sent her to that sweet by and by
