Adios Old Friend

You were headed for some border town
To find a Spanish rose and settle down
You hitched a ride on a Southbound Mexican wind

Adios old friend

Well I heard you made it as far as El Paso
Those Texas rangers would not let it go
They tracked you down on the banks of the Rio Grande

Adios old friend

Do angels sing for outlaws ?
I don’t know
But I know that outlaws pray
I’ve prayed it so

Old friend

Outside these bars I hear that mission bell
That hangman waits to send me straight to hell
No this ain’t where I thought our trail would end

Adios old friend

Maybe we’ll one day ride again
