Ray LaMontagne – One Lonesome Saddle


Well we rode into town like a couple of fools
High on the mezcal, bent low on my mule
I’s just tryna find some place where a man might get some rest
Wash the tears from my eyes and the blood from my vest

One lonesome saddle
One long and lonesome ride
One lonely cowboy
Pinin’ a woman unkind

Walked into the saloon on my feet that felt like lead
Cold steel hammer poundin’ into the back of my head
I raise up my glass to the quick and to the dead
Singin’ hey heavy and a bottle of red

One lonesome saddle
One long and lonesome ride
One lonely cowboy
Pinin’ a woman unkind

As the glass it left my lips, I felt her hand upon me
Her smile it was so warm but her eyes were so cold
She says to me now, “won’t you please walk beside me”
I just shut my mouth and I did as I was told

One lonesome saddle
One long and lonesome ride
One lonely cowboy
Pinin’ a woman, cold-hearted woman
Pinin’ a woman unkind
