Well this is how it starts
Two lovers in the dark
On the run from the one that they call sheriff spark
Six guns by their side
And bullets round their waist
Two shots to the sky signals signs for the chase
The safe was nearly empty and they were nearly free
But were seen by the good eye
Of the mean billy green
And he screamed at the top of his lungs
"they're on the run!"
It's the two wild siders
Grab your holsters and your guns

I said I wish that we could stay here
But I fear our time has come
We can ride out in the darkness
Chasing the rising sun
We gotta pack our bags this instant
Were heading southbound to the next town
And if we arrive there so safely
Baby you can lay me down

Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down

Well it's the story of the two
Always on the move
They've got nothing left to lose
Except their guns and their wounds
Now they're crossing borders
Sheriffs pose on their tail
They'd rather die together than be stuck up in a cell
They drank up all the whiskey and they partied every night
Like it could be the last
The bounty said to shoot on sight
So they chasing through the summer, though it came with the pride
They wouldn't stop running til they found a paradise
But the sheriff finally found them
With his eyes seeing red
So the lovers had to shoot him down
and fill him full of lead
They were finally free to find a place to lay their head
And when they finally did he looked at her and then he said

I said I think that we can stay here
Cuz I feel our time has come
And we can walk down to the ocean
And sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant
No more running from town to town
And now that we've arrived so safely
Baby you can lay me down

Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down

well you're my green eyed girl and I've been running round with you
It's the afternoon and we've got nothin left to do
So wipe the dirt off or take your shirt off
And we should go hit the cantina we got work off
I said it's hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes
Weve been running for a while
Why don't you lay down and make me smile
I could never ask for nothing better than this
It's just tequila and the beach that's why it's salty when we kiss

I said I think that we can stay here
Cuz I feel our time has come
And we can walk down to the ocean and sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant no more running from town to town
And now that weve arrived so safely baby you can lay me down

Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down
Lay me down

    It about them committing crime being on the run together finally they get running ot the baorder and have a shoot out. They get shot fatally. Then they slowly die looking into each others eye now they can be together forever and stop running live together in where ever there souls go. What ever they were dreaming of living when they had a life on the run
