Original Song


Panhandlin' until night, drinkin' whiskey to feel alright
Settin' round by the fire
Hoppin' outta ol' Cheyenne, I got itchy feet, do you understand
But you were my one true desire

Chorus: Ridin' Away x3
Ridin' away from you

Hobos versus cinder dicks, yegs and burglars, us thieves are thick
And stronger than Ole Bull's moonshine
The road is hard and never ends, can't tell my foes from my friends
But you were always nice and kind

Now my travellins' are through, I beat the trail back home to you
But when I got there you were gone
There was a note tacked to your door, sayin' you can't live like this no more
I guess I best be moving on
