Pancho and Lefty Lyrics Townes Van Zandt from Live at the Old Quarte

Living on the roadmy friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath's 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 boys
His horse was fast as polished steel
Wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
But Pancho met his match, you know
In the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dying words
That's the way it goes

And all the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him hang around
Out of kindnessI suppose

And 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
And where he got the bread to go
Ain't nobody knows

And all the federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him slip away
Out of kindness, I suppose

Well, the poets tell how Pancho fell
Lefty's living in a cheap hotel
The desert's quiet Cleveland's cold
So the story ends, we're told
Pancho needs your prayers, it's true
But save a few for Lefty, too
He just did what he had to do
And now he's growing old

And a few gray federales say
They could have had him any day
They only let him go so wrong
Out of kindness, I suppose
