(Rome)
Ho ohh woah ho ho no ohhh
hoo ooh oh
oh oooh ooh

Well this is how it starts two lovers in the dark
On the run from the one that they call Sheriff Sparks
Six guns by the side and bullets ’round their waist
Two shots to the sky signal sign for the chase.
The safe is nearly empty and they were nearly free
But were seen by the good eye of the mean Billy Queen
And he screamed at the top of his lungs “they’re on the run”
Mister two outsiders grab your horses and your guns

I said I wish that we could stay here
But I fear our time is come
We could ride out in the darkness
Chasing the rising sun
We gotta pack our bags this instant
We’re headin’ southbound til the next town
And if we arrive there so safely
Baby you could lay me down
Lay me downnn
Lay me dowahownnn
Lay me downnnnnn

(Duddy B)
Well its the story of the two, always on the move
They got nothing left to lose ‘cept their guns and their wounds
Now they’re crossing borders sheriff’s posse on their tail
They’d rather die together than be stuck up in a cell
They drank up all the whiskey and they partied every night
Like it could be the last, the bounty said to ‘shoot on sight’
They’re chasing in the summer, knew it came with a price
They wouldn’t stop running til they found the paradise
But the sheriff finally found them with his eyes seeing red
So the lovers had to shoot him down and fill him full of lead
They were finally free to find a place to lay their head
And when he finally did he looked at her and he said

(Rome)
I said I think that we can stay here
cuz I feel our time has come
And we can walk down to the ocean
And sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant
No more running from town to town
And now that we’ve arrived so safely
Baby you can lay me down

Lay me downnn
Lay me dowahownnn
Lay me downnnnnnnnnn

(Duddy B)
Well you’re my green eyed girl and i been running around with you
Its the afternoon and we got nothing left to do
So wipe the dirt off, take your shirt off
And we should go hit the cantina; we got work off

I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes
We been running for awhile
Why don’t you lay down i’ll make you smile
I could never ask for nothing better than this
It’s just tequila and the beach, it’s quite salty when we kiss

(Rome)
I said I think that we can stay here
cuz I feel our time has come
nd we can walk down to the ocean
And sit with the rising sun
So unpack your bags this instant
No more running from town to town
And now that we’ve arrived so safely
Baby you can lay me down

Lay me downnn
Lay me downhownnn noooo ohhh
Lay me downnnnnnnnnn
Lay me down
