Who Sang Del Rio Dan? The Everly Brothers

The Everly Brothers Stories We Could Tell cover art
Release information
Release Date: 1972
length: 3:55
He's an outlaw
The devil's friend
He is good, he is bad
Bound to do what he can
Ain't been nothin' like him, since the Billy the Kid
C C Younger was his best friend
They shared the same women
And they met the same end
Worked midnight's together at the river bend
Back-packin' kilos ‘cross the Rio Grande

Del Rio Dan is a wanted man
By the Federales and My-oh-My Queens
Spends his nights walkin' in the Villa Cuna sand
Waitin' in the Canebrake, for José to come
Knowing that at daybreak, they must be gone
All across the river
To the Texas sun

Del Rio Dan is a wanted man
With a Stetson hat
And a snakeskin band

Del Rio Dan is a wanted man
By the Federales and My oh My Queens
Del Rio Dan is a wanted man
With a Stetson hat
And a snakeskin band
