Verse 1:(Kris Kristofferson)
I'm gonna steal a silver stallion,with not a mark upon his silky hide
Teach him he can trust me like a brother,one day we'll saddle up and ride

Chorus:(All together with the lead voice of Johnny Cash)
And we're gonna ride,we're gonna ride
Ride like the one eyed jack of diamonds with the devil close behind
We're gonna ride

Verse 2:(Waylon Jennings)
I'm gonna find me a reckless woman,razor blades and dice in her eyes
Just a touch of sadness in her fingers,thunder and lightening in her thighs


Verse 3:(Willie Nelson)
I'm gonna chase the sky forever,with the woman and the stallion and the wind
The sun is gonna burn into a cinder,before we ever pass this way again

    I think it means that they're outlaws going to steal a
    Grey-colored (meaning "silver") and ride so fast that nobody will ever catch them.

    The character wants to be free and wreckless, and he's going to be forever roaming because of it. Haunting song, but good!
