I been in this town so long that back in the city I been
Taken for lost and gone and unknown for a long, long time

Fell in love years ago with an innocent girl from the
Spanish and Indian home of the Heroes and Villains.

Once at night, cotillion squared, the fight, and she was right
In the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down

But she's still dancing in the night unafraid of what
A dude'll do in a town full of Heroes and Villains.

Heroes and Villains
Just see what you done-done
Heroes and villains
