I have been with the best that the bastards could muster
From danny the dildo to sidney the snake
And i feel like a working girl pausing to wonder
Just how much screwin' the spirit can take

Chorus:
I said, "willie old buddy, please tell me again
The reason to keep goin' on."
He said, "there's no harder words to say over a friend
Than they done you so righteously wrong
They stopped you from singing your song"

He was our hero, boys, he took the bullet
But he went down swingin' his fist from the floor
You can ask any working girl south of the border
Sam peckinpah era un hombre for sure

Chorus:
Willie old buddy please tell me again
The reason to keep goin' on
He said, "there's no harder words to say over a friend
Than they done you so righteously wrong
They stopped you from singin' your song."

But not me.
