lyrics

i’m a double-jawed hyena from the east
if she’s the celebrated sister i’m the beast
when i see a desolated town hear me growl
but i may never count myself among the greats

and I know i gotta lot of work to do
i’ve got time
if she’s the celebrated sister of my mind

broken light out the window of the county jail
behold a flash the turnkey’s lost his way
stumbled past a spider’s spell
smash the bottle and pry the cell

quick as weeds and i’m stealing the fat mayor’s horse (no name)
give a wink to his wife while i’m stealing his horse (the old game)
half a mind to pay my respects one last time
double jaw don’t act a fool
quit the town and keep your cool

alone
alone


and after sometime on my own
one voice alone replies
from the heavens above a man with no name
found me where the earth meets the sky
we ride thru the night saddle chaps to the bone
till the morning we’re covered in dew
and i wake to find my eyes crusted wide
no horse no man just the blue i’m a fool
