Contract

Lyrics: Dave Torbert
Music: Dave Torbert

Been hangin' down, New Mexico
Santa Fe, up to Taos
And I'm riding hard
I ain't go no star on my shirt

South Wyoming, Cheyenne Town
Five thousand dollars, guess I'll hunt you down
I've been around
Gonna see your face in the ground

All day tracking I'm on your trail
Ain't no getting away from me, no
All night riding, I see your fire
Buddy ride

Hey Sam McCafty, show your face
But don't look back my buddy, show a trace
Because I don't care
I can smell your blood in the air

All day tracking I'm on your trail
Ain't no getting away from me, no
All night riding, I see your fire
Buddy ride

Been hangin' down, New Mexico
Santa Fe, up to Taos
And I'm riding hard
I ain't go no star on my shirt
