lyrics

Two boys came for the noonday race
Looked the same, save their face
I swear I’ve seen them boys before
but they told me that’s not what your’re getting paid for

They jumped the fence to the outside track
I heard once you’re there, you can’t come back
They stole the prize without a sound
Never turned around, just left Camptown.

By the time they’d left I’d lost my tin
I had no hat to cave in
And when the ladies sang their song,
I turned around,...
They were gone to run all night, gone to run all day.
And when those ladies sang their song
They were gone.

I got stuck in a deep mud hole
Could’ve climbed out but you took the pole
Your hat shade hides an evil gaze
Forced me down upon my knees to pray

By the time they’d left I’d lost my tin
I had no hat to cave in
And when the ladies sang their song,...I turned around,...
They were gone to run all night, gone to run all day.
And when those ladies sang their song
They were gone.

Oh, those days
All those, the sweet words you’d say

Followed you all night with the mountain boys,
Thrown off the scent by your decoys
Never seen the likes of you again,
Left me alone in clouds of sin

By the time they’d left I’d lost my tin
I had no hat to cave in
And when the ladies sang their song,
I turned around,...
They were gone to run all night, gone to run all day.
And when those ladies sang their song
They were gone.
