lyrics

I found myself in Colorado - in Pueblo where the wind does blow
Walking around with my brother - with nowhere else to go
We went out a’roaming - to see what we could see
All I found was a woman lonesome as could be
Lonesome as could be

We went to that old bar room - and drank that cold liquor down
Waylon, George and Willy - were singing that high and lonesome sound When a man walked in a’talkin’ and waving his pistol around
Saying don’t you tread on me brothers - I was lost but now I am found Was lost but now I’m found

The guns they were blazing - so I pitched out to the floor
Thats when I saw my love a’running - till that bullet it dropped her to the floor I stood shaking and swearing - I looked that man in the eye and said
You have killed my one true love - now sir its your time to die
Sir its your time to die

I grabbed a broken bottle - and turned to find that man
Was standing there before me - shaking with that pistol in his hand I knew my time was coming - so I thought of my dear old friends
And my home out on the lonesome prairie - how I’d meet my end

Till I felt his warm blood running - down upon my hand
That Pueblo man was a stumbling - he was shot by another man
Was shot by another man
