Mama never understood
What it`s like for a losing man
When her number one son goes bad
Playing cards with the devil`s hand

But daddy got real sick so quick
For wars I`ll never understand
I was the one that good with the fun
Took the money from the rich man`s land

Gimme some water
Cause I shot a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water
I need a little water

Jimmy grew up so fast
Then he met me at the pass one day
Said, you`re a wanted man
Take your brother`s hand
I`ll be running with you anyway

So we rode late in the night
Like the fires on the desert sand
Til one day, the posse caught us
Cause the sheriff always gets his man

Gimme some water
Cause I killed a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
I need a little water

Oh Jeez, I just can`t lose my hand
I`ve run just as fast as my legs can
But Lord, I got no room to run
Shouldn`t have done what
I did with that big gun

Hey hey, yeah

Gimme some water
Cause I killed a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water

Can`t you see that long white rope
Hanging from the hangman`s tree
Take a restless horse
Tie my hands of course
Tell my mother that I`m finally free

Let me die like a man
No one understands
Let me pray that a poor man`s brave
Smacked that horse in the ass
With my last dying gasp
My brother could hear me say

Gimme some water
Cause I shot a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water

Gimme some water
Cause I shot a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water

Gimme some water
Cause I shot a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water

Gimme some water
Cause I killed a man
On the Mexican border
Cool, sweet water
Gimme some water
