Townes Van Zandt - Pancho & Lefty 1993 TV Performance (via imediocre)
I posted this over at EDSBS, and I'm reasonably proud of it, so I though I'd share. The video is for reference.
Headin’ down the road my friend, ain’t gonna keep you free and clean Now you put your billboards in our towns and make gestures most would think obscene. You weren’t your momma’s only boy, but the younger one it seems Baylor cried when you said goodbye And played with other teams.
Steve, he was a bandit boy, his mouth was fast as polished steel He wore his gun outside his pants For all the Volunteers to feel Steve, he met his match, in fact, in the swamplands near the Potomac The Gators didn’t want him back, so at them he thumbs his nose.
All the Texas Longhorns say, they might play again someday They’re gonna let 'em find their way, out of kindness I suppose
Kevin he can’t use the excuse of a small-time school like he used to He’s playing big boy football now, and maybe Steve can show him how. The day they let old Kevin in, the OBC recognized a friend And called him up right there and then, and they dreamed of Cotton Bowls
And all the conference members say, "They made them rivals, didn’t they? Steve’s probably chewing hay out of kindness I suppose."
The boys tell how old Steve returned, and Kevin passed the bridges burned The Aggies yell, Columbia’s hell But those are things we know too well. Kevin needs your prayers it’s true, but save a few for Stevie, too He only does what he knows to do, and now he’s growing old
All the Texas Longhorns say, we’re only EIGHT days away Summer could only go so long, but it’s time that chapter closed.
