Oscar Brown, Jr. – The Lone Ranger lyrics

The Lone Ranger and Tonto
Were riding down the Navajo Trail
When a band of Indians found em
Proceeded to surround em and
The Lone Ranger turned kinda pale

Tonto, our lives are in danger
We got to get away if we can
Tonto just looked at Lone Ranger
What you mean, we, white man

[Chorus:]
Tell me what you mean
(We, white man)
Tell me what you mean (we)
Tell me what you mean
(We, white man)
Tell me what you mean (we)

You in heap big trouble
But it don't involve me, white man
No, it don't involve me
It do not involve me, white man
It do not involve me

The Lone Ranger said, Tonto
Why talk about the shade of my hide
After all we been through
It would make me mighty blue
If you don't remain by my side

We'll steal away said the Ranger
Grab an Injun by the hand
Tonto said, turn me loose, stranger
What you mean, we, white man

[Chorus:]

You in heap big trouble
But it don't involve me, white man
No, it don't involve me
It don't involve me, white man
No, it don't involve me

The Lone Ranger cried, Tonto
Stick with me and I'll double your pay
We can do a switch about
You give me your pony, Scout
And ride Silver, hi-ho away

But hurry up said the masked man
To get away, we're gonna have to race
Tonto took Silver and laughed
And said what you mean, we, paleface

Tell me what you mean
(We, paleface)
Tell me what you mean (we)
Tell me what you mean
(We, paleface)
Tell me what you mean (we)

You in heap big trouble
But it don't involve me, paleface
No, it don't involve me
It don't involve me, paleface
No, it don't involve me

It don't involve me, paleface
It don't involve me
(Hi ho, Silver away)
What you talking bout, we, paleface
What you talking bout, we

(That's your problem, paleface)
What you talking bout, we, paleface
What you talking bout, we

It don't involve me, paleface
It don't involve me
It don't involve me, paleface
It don't involve me...
