I like old Colt revolvers
and the taste of cheap whiskey.
I like big bosomed ladies in corsets
that want to get frisky.
I like Stephen Foster tunes
banged out on an upright piano.
And I prefer the Old West version
of ol’ San Francisco.

But I was born too late
to be the outlaw I was meant to be.
There could’ve been wanted posters
with Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and me.
I would’ve robbed a lot of banks,
stagecoaches, and a few trains too.
But I was born into these so-called civilized modern times
and all I have are my daydreams and you.

I like riding in the saddle
and breathing the clean air for hours.
I long for the day when men
were known as fighters or cowards.
I like the smell of tobacco
spit all over the floor.
And I want my saloon
to have swinging doors.

Being an outlaw
ain’t what it used to be.
No more wanted posters.
They plaster your face on TV.
It’s drive-by shootings
and pushing dope to kids by the school.
And no more high noon endings
to the sheriff in a duel.
