      Townes Van Zandt - Pancho & Lefty Música y Letra

      Living on the road my friend,
      Is gonna keep you free and clean
      Now you wear your skin like iron,
      Your breath as hard as kerosene.
      You weren't your mama's only boy,
      But her favorite one it seems
      She began to cry when you said goodbye,
      And sank into your dreams.
      Pancho was a bandit boy,
      His horse was fast as polished steel
      He wore his gun outside his pants
      For all the honest world to feel.
      Pancho met his match you know
      On the deserts down in mexico
      Nobody heard his dying words,
      Ah but that's the way it goes.
      All the federales say
      They could have had him any day
      They only let him slip away
      Out of kindness, I suppose.
      Lefty, he can't sing the blues
      All night long like he used to.
      The dust that pancho bit down south
      Ended up in lefty's mouth
      The day they laid poor pancho low,
      Lefty split for ohio
      Where he got the bread to go,
      There ain't nobody knows
      The poets tell how pancho fell,
      And lefty's living in cheap hotels
      The desert's quiet, cleveland's cold,
      And so the story ends we're told
      Pancho needs your prayers it's true,
      But save a few for lefty too
      He only did what he had to do,
      And now he's growing old
