I live out yonder where the snakes and scorpions run
But one day my heart sank when I saw madame in town

Pourquoi perdre sa vie a  chercher l'or d'un coeur?
Je ferme mes comptes et je repars
Some spend their whole lives searching for a heart of gold
I'm cashing in my chips before I ride
Do me a favor while I'm hanging here
(don't twist too hard darlin' on your hangin' rope)

She didn't say she'd have a whole army there as well
(it's getting late and I'm running out of time)
Better off with the scorpions and snakes
Guess I'm a little late this time
Mine, all mine
