​Spirit Boy

This song is by Christian Kane.

There's a little girl down south
And her daddy's got a ranch
'Bout as big as my town,
One day I swear
I'm gonna go down there and get her out.
From the letter that I got last fall
She said you know you're the one I love most of all
But my picture's up on the sheriff's wall
And there's reward signs
Posted up and down the river
Every line I cross out there tonight
Trying to find my heart and looking for a fight.
And there were four guards standing on the wall
I drew two six-guns
And I watched them fall.
Oh yeah...
Yeah, well I came busting through them gates
Into a 12 gauge and a .38
But I was quick on the draw and I got 'em all
Yelled out to Rosabella...
And she came walking softly out through the night
Hair so long and looking at me
With those big blue eyes.
I grabbed her hand and we ran to leave
But her daddy came a-running from around a tree
And said
"Ain't no way my daughter's leaving here with no Cherokee."
Oh yeah, well in my rage and to his surprise
I looked him deep in his buckshot eyes
And he had his hand on his gun but I was holding mine.
And I'm running down this Indian highway
In a ball of red.
I got a loaded gun and things are goin' my way for a change.
Well, you might think that I'm gonna be swingin' from a tree
Oh, no I'm a spirit boy,
Ain't nobody gonna catch me
No, yeah, yeah, yeah...
(Chanting)
We made love that very night
Under a burnt auburn Cancun sky
And I guess now I'm a Mexican
'Cause in Texas I'm a wanted man.
She got up in an all-white gown
From the man who shot her daddy down...
Somewhere in the heat of the night there was a shot,
And I'm running down this Indian highway
In a ball of red.
I got a loaded gun and things are goin' my way for a change.
Well, you might think that I'm gonna be swingin' from a tree;
Hell no I'm a spirit boy
Ain't nobody gonna catch me.
Yeah
I'm a spirit boy
Ain't nobody gonna catch me.
Well
I'm a spirit boy
Yeah
There ain't nobody' gonna catch me
Yeah.
