Outlaw running from the law
But he's got nowhere to run to
Big law he broke it and ran faster
Than the lightning bolt

Chasing down the golden sun
Running away from the blue
He ran with no direction in mind
Just running like a crazy colt

And he's gonna run, let the four winds slap his face
He's gonna fly, let the sky be his guide
He's gonna lie beneath a blanket of stars
He's gonna run wild as the western wind

Bad lands are sheltering him
Maybe Dakota's his home
Red man's become his friend
When no one else would have him

There's an Indian woman who keeps him
From being alone
She stands tall by his side
But the law's got him out on a limb
