lyrics

I'm on the run now darling
and I can't stop for you
He came at me with murder in his eyes
and I ran him through

It was no surprise to me Darling
when they came for me
I was bound with a rope around my neck
for company

But they can't hang me high
under a foreign sky

Meet me far away
in the land of the midday moon
And I will ride each night and day
through the heart of a mean monsoon

All of the night while I lie awake
beneath a lonely moon
Don't forsake me, sweet baby
'Cause I will be home soon . . .

I first saw you sitting
beneath the burning sun
you were waiting at the crossroads
for the Devil's cab to come

My lips wouldn't move, just stood there
as if I were stunned
you just smiled and kept on counting
the bullets in your gun

They can't hang me high
under a foreign sky

Take me far away
to the land of the midday moon
And I will ride each night and day
through the heart of a mean monsoon

All of the night while I lie awake
beneath a lonely moon
Don't forsake me, sweet baby
'Cause I will be home soon . . .

The Marshall's men caught up with us
at the edge of the southern sea
they stole you away and
took me to my hanging tree

They can't hang me high
under a foreign sky

Meet me far away
in the land of the midday moon
Through the valley of the serpent sun
and the heart of the mean monsoon

And under the stone surrounded by bones
There you'll find a key
take the dubloons but leave one for the moon
who is watching over me . . .
