[ with Merle Haggard ]

Living on the road my friend was gonna keep you free and clean
Now you were your skin like iron and 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
Poncho was a bandit boy his horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to feel
Poncho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dyin' words ah but that's the way it goes
All the Federals say they could've had him any day
We only let him slip away out of kindness I suppose

Lefty he can't sing the blues all night long like he used to
