  • Songwriter: Rutherford, Rivers
  • (Johnny)
  • I am a shotgun rider for the San Jacinto line
  • The desert is my brother, my skin is cracked and dry
  • I was ridin' on a folk coach, and everything was fine
  • Till we took a shorter road to save some time
  • The bandits only fired once, they shot me in the chest
  • They may've wounded me, but they'll never get the best of better men
  • 'Cause I'll ride again
  • (Waylon)
  • I am a river gambler; I make a livin' dealin' cards
  • My clothes are smoothed and honest; my heart is cold and hard
  • I was shufflin' for some delta boys on a boat for New Orleans
  • I was the greatest sharp they'd ever seen
  • But the captain bumped a sandbar, and an ace fell from my sleeve
  • They threw me overboard as I swore I didn't cheat, but I could swim
  • And I'll ride again
  • (All)
  • We are heros of the homeland, American remains
  • We live in many places, and answer many names
  • We will not be forgotten, we won't be left behind
  • Our memories live on in mortal minds and poets' pens
  • We'll ride again
  • (Willie)
  • I am a midwest farmer; I make a livin' off the land
  • I ride a John Deere tractor, I'm a liberated man
  • But the rain, it hasn't fallen since the middle of July
  • And if it don't come soon, my crops will die
  • The bankman says he likes me, but there's nothin' he can do
  • He tells me that he's comin', but the clouds are comin' too; he ain't my friend
  • And I'll ride agin
  • (Kris)
  • I am an American Indian; my tribe is Cherokee
  • My forefathers loved this land; they left it here for me
  • But the white men came with boats and trains and dirty factories
  • Poisoned my existence with his deeds
  • Nature is our mother, we are sucklin' her breast
  • He who tries to beat 'er down will lose her to the rest; they'll never win
  • I'll ride again
  • (All)
  • We are heros of the homeland, American remains
  • We live in many places, and answer many names
  • We will not be forgotten, we won't be left behind
  • Our memories live on in mortal minds and poets' pens
  • We'll ride again
