I have been with the best that the bastards could muster
From Danny the Dildo to Sydney the Snake
And I feel like a working girl pausing to wonder
Just how much screwin' the spirit can take
I said, "Willie old buddy, please tell me again
The reason to keep going on"
He said, "There's no harder words to say over a friend
Than they done you so righteously wrong
That stopped you from singing your song"
He was our hero , boys, he took the bullet
But he went down swingin' his fist from the floor
You can ask any working girl south of the border
Sam Peckinpaugh era un hombre for sure
