The train came behind him like a shot from a gun in yer sleep 
And just for a second he forgot what to do with his feet
The photo creases dug in to his chest 'til they cut
And sweet Lily Langtry whispered his name through the dust

Here comes the judge in somebody else's shoes 
Ah here comes the judge in somebody else's shoes 

 Champagne heels are gonna dig a golden hole in the dirt
So keep your guns in your jackets I'm sending you out with a curse  Keeping the law from the Pecos to the Rio Grande 
And sweet Lily Langtry whispered his name through the sand

[Chorus]

He heard her name call
As the Texas wind blows 
From ten thousand miles away
To the cactus that frames her face

[Chorus]
