Another rare one from Hank The Lyrics.............
The cowboy was drunk and braggin' He told her he had a wagon A wagon filled up with gold that he'd stole And then covered all over with hay She cried when she learned what he'd done that day The girl who loved the man who robbed the bank At Santa Fe and got away
Please take it all back she pleaded Said his love was all she needed But he said, "I only did it for you So don't you look at me that way." Because she loved him so, she said okay The girl who loved the man who robbed the bank At Santa Fe and got away
But that night while she lay in the arms of her man He talked in his sleep and she discovered his plan He talked in his sleep and gave himself away When he talked of another girl waiting in San Jose With the same loving hands that thrilled him She picked up his gun and killed him She killed him and threw his gold dust all over his body Right there where it lay She was the only mourner there that prayed The girl who shot the man who robbed the bank At Santa Fe and got away
