We can share what we got of yours 'cause we done shared all of mine.
Keep on rollin' my old buddy, you're movin' much too slow.
I just jumped the watchman, right outside the fence.
Hurts my ears to listen, Shannon, burns my eyes to see;

And one's for sport and one's for blood at the point of a knife.
There ain't a winner in the game, he don't go home with all.

Sun so hot, the clouds so low, the eagles filled the sky.
The Great Northern out of Cheyenne, from sea to shining sea.
Gotta go to Tulsa, first train we can ride.
There ain't a place a man can hide, Shannon will keep him from the sun

And dug for him a shallow grave and laid his body down.
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow.
We can share the women, we can share the wine.
