See, I'm a lover, not a fighter
I never stare nobody down
Til one night my girl
I could not find her
She never made it back from town

I found my Shannon crying in the woods
Wicked man hold her down
I stuck him deep
I buried him good
Not deep enough to fool the hounds

We took shelter in a chapel
Underneath a blood moon sky
I bought a gun and made
Shannon my wife

We jumped in a box-car to old mexico
Where I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home
No I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home

The train stopped in Tijuana
We built a shack beneath the Sun
I made my Shannon margaritas
We watched our children laugh and run
Run, run

Sometimes I miss my daddy
Sometimes I miss my mom
But I think they would be real proud of me
To know the man that I've become

We took shelter in a chapel
Underneath a blood moon sky
I bought a gun and made
Shannon my wife

We jumped in a box-car to old mexico
Where I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home
No I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home

Train, train roll on
Train, train roll on
Train, train roll on
Shannon why did you run wit me
She say
What was I supposed to do boy
Just watch you leave
You would have broken my heart
You would be a hole in my dreams
You're the boy that all I need
You're the boy and others I will never need

We took shelter in a chapel
Underneath a blood moon sky
I bought a gun and made
Shannon my wife

We jumped in a box-car to old mexico
Where I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home
No I ain't worth a penny
My bounty back home
