Lyrics



Take me across the water cause I need some place to hide

I done the rancher's daughter and I sure did hurt his pride

Haha


Well, there's a hundred miles of desert lies between his hide and mine

I don't need no food and no water, Lord, cause I'm runnin' out of time


Fightin', killin', wine and women gonna put me to my grave

Runnin', hidin', losin', cryin', nothing left to save

But my life


Stood on a ridge and shunned religion, thinking the world was mine

I made my break and a big mistake, stealin' when I should have been buyin'


All that fightin', killin', wine and those women gonna put me to an early grave

Runnin', hidin', losin', cryin', nothing left to save

But my life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life, life


So I stood on a ridge and shunned religion, thinking the world was mine

I made my break and a big mistake, stealin' when I should have been buyin'

I was stealin' when I should have been buyin'

I was stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin' woo

Stealin' hahaha, yeh


I was stealin' when I should have been buyin'

Stealin', oh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

Stealin', oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo

Stealin', rock'n'roll, all right

Stealin', rock'n'roll, all right

Stealin' babe, babe

Stealin', should, should, should have been buyin'

Stealin', should, should, should have been buyin'

Stealin', should have, should have, should have been buyin'

Stealin', buying, yeah
