The Johnnys – The Day Marty Robbins Died lyrics

Well my bottle is empty
And my head is preoccupied
Cause my luck just ran out
And today Marty Robbins died

Well my horse got divorced
And my pigs they all cried
My big iron will not fire
Cause today Marty Robbins died

Oh Marty when you rode into El Paso
Wearing your sports coat
And singing songs about lost love and life
That you wrote

Like Mother Maybelle and Hank Williams
And that Grand Ole Opry in the sky
I believe he'll be singin up there with them tonight
Cause today Marty Robbins died
Today Marty Robbins died
Today Marty Robbins died
