El Dorado

Find myself lookin' down on a canyon
But the next one's the same as before
The trail's so damn rocky and the sun's so damn hot
I don't know where I'm headed anymore
And it's hard to remember the first time I drew my gun
The faces return in the night
The past is all echoes and shadows anymore
I think I lost my taste for the fight

That is the fate of the old desperado
Better the angels to claim you than the long ride alone
Someone would have long ago found El Dorado
So luck to you, cowboy, I'm movin' on

Play your cards as they lay on the table
Should've ended a long time ago
The only place that ever really mattered to me
Was the one place I just couldn't go
And the stars, when they shine, how they light up the night
Smell the rain comin' in on the wind
Though my eyes are so heavy, I remember tonight
When the world was just waitin' to begin

That is the fate of the old desperado
Better the angels to claim you than the long ride alone
Someone would have long ago found El Dorado
So luck to you, cowboy, I'm movin' on

But the years they will blind you, the road will unwind you
Remind you of how far you've gone

He closed his eyes from the heavens
His breathing slowed down to a crawl
The clouds opened up like a dam broken down
And I just sat there and let the rain fall

That is the fate of the old desperado
Better the angels to claim you than the long ride alone
Someone would have long ago found El Dorado
So luck to you, cowboy, I'm movin' on
Luck to you, cowboy, I'm movin' on
