Lyrics

Run out of town,
Burned down my home.
Desert bound,
I hit the trail alone.
Bedding down
On my tombstone.

Before sundown I'll make a last call home.

I just hope pa'll understand,
Why I'm calling collect from No Man's Land.

A tumbleweed
Rolls through boothill.
A ghostown heart
Half way rebuilt.
Oozing red
But beating still.

I'm gut-shot but only half-killed.

I just hope pa'll understand,
Why I'm calling collect from No Man's Land.
