Out of the winter came a war horse of steel.
I've never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels.
I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw.
So now I've got to look for Sanctuary from the law.

I met up with a stranger last night to keep me alive.
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive.
I know you'd gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for Sanctuary from the law

*chorus*
So give me Sanctuary from the law
And I'll be alright
Just give me Sanctuary from the law
And love me tonight... tonight

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for Sanctuary from the law

*chorus*

I can laugh at the wind
I can howl at the rain
Down in the Canyon or out on the plain

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for Sanctuary from the law

*chorus*
