Mama never understood
What it's like for a losing man
When her number one son goes bad
Playing cards with the Devil's Hand, whoa

Daddy got real sick so quick
Four walls never understand
I was the one who got good with the gun
Took the money from the rich man's land

Gimme some water
'Cause I shot a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water
I need a little water

Jimmy grew up so fast
And he met me at the pass one day
Said, "You're a wanted man - take your brother's hand
I'll be running with you, anyway"

So we rode late in the night
Like fires on the desert sand
'Til one day the posse caught us
'Cause the sheriff always gets his man

Gimme some water
'Cause I killed a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
I need a little water

Oh, geeze - if I just get loose my hands
I'd run just as fast as my legs can
But, Lord, I've got no room to run
Shouldn't have done what I did with that there gun

Gimme some water
'Cause I killed a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water

Guess you see that long, white rope
Hanging from the hangman's tree
Take the restless horse - tie my hands, of course
Tell my mother that I'm finally free

Let me die like a man - no one understands
Let me pray that a poor man prays
Slap that horse in the ass - with my last dying gasp
My brother could hear me say:

"Gimme some water
'Cause I shot a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water"

Gimme some water
'Cause I shot a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water

Gimme some water
'Cause I shot a man on the Mexican border
Cool, cool water
Gimme some water

Gimme some water
'Cause I killed a man on the Mexican border
Cool, sweet water
Gimme some water
