Long hard trails underneath the texas sun
Rode into the town I was lookin' for some action
Drier than a cactus, had my back against the wall
Suckin' down the hooch, when I heard the stranger yell, "draw!"
Tried to do some talkin', but his hand was on his gun
I was quicker to the trigger, so now I'm on the run

(chorus)
No I'm an outlaw, running like the rest
No one buys my story, that I shot in self-defense
Outlaw, runnin' from the pack
Baby here they come, yeah they're breathin' down my back

Hi-ho silver, now they're comin' after me
Gotta keep movin' or they'll hang me from an old tree
Tell my wife and kids I'll see them when I can
Gotta keep movin' I am a wanted man

Tried to do some talkin' but his gun was at my head
Quicker to the trigger and I pumped him full of lead
