The Lyrics

I knew a man Texas Jericho and he'd dance for you
In staring out boots
With green grass, a blue skies, and dirt road
The old cowboys there
The guns after high, chased so high
Before he quickly fell down

Mr. Texas Jericho, Mr. Texas Jericho
Mr. Texas Jericho, retire

I met him in a cell in Los Angeles I was
touch and laugh
This man could to me in redneck roads
as he singing last out
He ragged of life, ragged of life, he toughed
staring his heels and distracted

Mr. Texas Jericho, Mr. Texas Jericho
Mr. Texas Jericho, retire

He said his name "Texas Jericho" and he burning to dust
cheated on thrills
He bleed his bunches and climb his ready,
Oh he jumped so high and then he clicked his heels
He let go a laugh, let go a laugh
and afford back his wheels all around

Mr. Texas Jericho, Mr. Texas Jericho
Mr. Texas Jericho, retire

He danced for those at strike fists and wrapped guns
dirt road the bears
He bunch through tears of 15 years how his dog and him
thanked about
The rag-top up and died, he up and died
And after 60 years he still grieves

Mr. Texas Jericho, Mr. Texas Jericho
Mr. Texas Jericho, retire

He said I dance now at something pretty in drinking cowboys
for cold beer and tips
But most the time I spend behind these wrapped pulls
'cause I drinks a bit
He loving his head, and as he loving his head
There's something ask him please
Please

Mr. Texas Jericho, Mr. Texas Jericho
Mr. Texas Jericho, retire..
