You were just like me
I was one big bruise
In the game of life
We were playing to lose
You were Jesse James
I was William Tell
You were Daniel Webster
I was the Devil himself
Two Characters in search of a country song
Just make believe but so in love
Two characters been listening all night long
For voices from Nashville above
Hell on eighteen wheels
At a hundred per
We went crashing through
The Jersey barrier
But the road went on
Over dale and hill
You were Calamity Jane
And I was Wild Bill
