The dividing line ran through the center of town.
I hitched up my pony to a post on the rise,
in to a laundry to wash my clothes down.
A man in the corner approached me for a match.
I knew right away he was
He said, "Are you lookin' for somethin' easy to catch?"
I said, "I got no money." He said, "That ain't

I gave him my blanket, he gave me his word.

I was thinkin' about diamonds and the world's biggest necklace.
