Verse 2

I might of had a side kick with a funny name

running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James

Ending up on the brink of danger

Riding shotgun for the Texas Rangers

Go west yound man, haven’t you been told

California’s full of whisky, women and gold

Sleeping out all night beneath the Texas stars

Dream in my eye and a prayer in my heart

Chorus
