Hey he stumbled from some derelicts bar
Throw out his hands and leaned on a car
And pretty soon this girl come up to him
Said, "Hey, how 'bout some fun now, slim?"

Yeah, he stuck his hand in his pocket
And he pulled out a bill
He said, "I don't need no fun, little girl
But I sure could use some pills"

'Cause I been broke and I been throw
I been bought and I been sold
And Helena Montana
Beats Hell in a city, gone cold

And Calgary's like Calvary to me
And Ft. Worth, it ain't worth a damn
And Cheyenne, hell, she ain't shy at all
But I'm damned sure gonna take my ride before I fall

Yi, yi, yi, whoppi ti e yi
Yi, yi, yi, whoppi ti e yi e oh

There's a Montana midnight
Under a moonlight, tonight
And a Montana girl in the bed a-waiting
For this tore down old body

That ain't at all, all right
But she knows he'll be back
Sooner or later

'Cause I been broke
And I been throw, I been learned
Damned, I should've knowed
That Helena Montana
Beats hell in a city gone cold

Yi, yi, yi, whoppi ti e yi
Yi, yi, yi, whoppi ti e yi e oh
