Highwaymen – Red-Headed Stranger lyrics
The red-headed stranger from Blue Rock, Montana,
Rode into town one day.
And under his knees was a ragin' black stallion,
And walkin' behind was a bay.
The red-headed stranger had eyes like the thunder,
And his lips, they were sad and tight.
His little lost love lay asleep on the hillside,
And his heart was heavy as night.
Don't cross him, don't boss him.
He's wild in his sorrow,
He's ridin' an' hidin' his pain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him,
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll ride on again.

[Chorus]
A yellow-haired lady leaned out of her window,
An' watched as he passed her way.
She drew back in fear at the sight of the stallion,
But cast greedy eyes on the bay.
But how could she know that this dancin' bay pony,
Meant more to him than life.
For this was the horse that his little lost darlin',
Had ridden when she was his wife.

Don't cross him, don't boss him.
He's wild in his sorrow,
He's ridin' an' hidin his pain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him,
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll ride on again.

[Chorus]

"Don't cross him, don't boss him.
"He's wild in his sorrow,
"He's ridin' an' hidin' his pain.
"Don't fight him, don't spite him,
"Just wait till tomorrow,
"Maybe he'll ride on again."

[Chorus]

Don't cross him, don't boss him.
He's wild in his sorrow,
He's ridin' an' hidin' his pain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him,
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll ride on again.
