Sunset on the highway to old Mexico
Ruby like the wind upon my face
Thunder from a storm on the horizon far away
Ruby cut directly to the chase

She said,
"Anywhere you're going baby
You just gotta know I'm on your side. (I always was)
When you climb upon the stallion
You are bound to let him take you for a ride
All the way."

Chorus:
I know I'm still wild enough for you
And you know you, you can always count on me
Baby, we used to be worth fighting for
So tell me, are we?

Anything like anything we used to be
Or tried to make believe before the fall?
Tell me how the hell you keep your spirit (Remember spirit?)
Strong enough to answer to the call

Ruby closed her eyes and faced the heavens
She said, "Take me to the stars one more time"
I was doin' eighty, but I pushed her through the floor
And watched her climb
Outta sight, outta mind

Chorus:
I know I'm still wild enough for you
And you know you, you can always count on me
Baby, we used to be worth fighting for
So tell me, are we?
