Molly Hatchet - Saddle Tramp lyrics

well, i pulled out of canyon county

great cradle of the west

my mama and me and one lone dog

Tryin to do our best

strangers all around me

said none knew my name

i came to take back this land

i came to stake my claim, yes sir

the farm is all i've ever know

it bears my family name

but, damn, my brother got drunk one night

and lost it all in a poker game

shots rang through the silence

i heard the angels cry

you never arrive a winner a saint or a sinner

the boy said aces high


saddletramp you're back in action

lookin for the man that took my brother

i came to put him down

saddletramp you spend your whole life

runnin like the wind....going for the bounty but

riding for the thrill

mama died of a broken heart

the way myy brother threw his life away

but when they put him in the ground

it like to kill me just the same

half past the hour of midnight

i looked into the killers eyes

i pulled my 45 and bullets started flyin

the man he had to die

(chorus) 2x

everytime you take a life,

the devils watching you

he'll fill you with a pack of lies

and he'll steal your soul from you......i say
