The Ballad of Lonesome Rhodes

Soldier boys chasing after you
With the older boys racing for you too
I was slowly feeling fine
I was so excited
There we were dancing on the dunes
She said she was a step child of the moon
She was so inside my head
That my mind could soon be read
But she was someone else's mystery to unravel
So farther down the lonesome road I travel

I met her when the wind was blowing in
And I kissed her when the waves had wet her skin
I was slowly feeling fine
I was so delighted
Tumbleweeds drifting in the breeze
And hanging like the lovers on her sleeve
She was so inside my head
That my heart would soon be bled
But she was someone else's mystery to unravel
So farther down the lonesome road I travel
Guess she was someone else's mystery to unravel
So farther down the lonesome road I travel
I travel
