Out of the winter came a war horse of steel
Never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
Now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law, yeah

I met up with a slinger last night to keep me alive
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
Now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law, yeah

So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright
Sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
Now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law, yeah

I can laugh at the wind, howl in the rain
Scream in the canyons or down in the plains

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
Now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law, yeah

Sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright
Sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

Love me tonight
