Worth Fighting For Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

Sunset on the highway to old Mexico
Ruby like the wind upon my face
Thunder from a storm on the horizon far away
Ruby cut directly to the chase

She said, "Anywhere you're going, baby
You just gotta know I'm on your side
(I always was)
When you climb upon the stallion
You are bound to let him take you for a ride
All the way"

I know I'm still wild enough for you
And you know you, you know you can count on me
Baby, we used to be worth fighting for
So tell me, are we?

Anything like anything we used to be
Or tied to make believe before the fall?
Tell me how the hell you keep your spirit
(Remember spirit?)
Strong enough to answer to the call

Ruby closed her eyes and faced the heavens
She said, "Take me to the stars one more time"
I was doin' eighty, but I pushed her through the floor
And watched her climb outta sight, outta mind

I know I'm still wild enough for you
You know you, you know you can count on me
Baby, we used to be worth fighting for
So tell me, are we?

Anywhere you're going, baby
You just gotta know I'm on your side
(I always was)
When you climb upon the stallion
You are bound to let him take you for a ride
All the way

It's singing wild, still wild enough for you
And you know you, you know you can count on me
Baby, we used to be worth fighting for
So tell me, are we?
