Pancho And Lefty

Lyrics

Living on the road my friend,
Was gonna keep you free and clean.
Now you wear your skin like iron,
Your breath as hard as kerosene.

Sorry Van Zandt, but this arrangement is about a million times better than your cover of your own song.
My father name fransico dat for pancho n he was lefty for any thing he did hands n feet n we leave in cleavland i love this song
Way better than anything the Eagles did. Eagles is elevator music
This is poetry - If you're a TVZ fan I highly recommend the disc 'Poet' which is a compilation of his songs by other artists. I recently went to a R. Crowell concert on a cold March evening here in Northern Ohio and it really resonated when he sang this song, especially the lyric 'the deserts quiet and Cleveland's cold'. The whole auduence was singing along - it was a real highlight.

As good as Desperado by The Eagles is, this is easily ten times the poetry. On top of that the voices of Willie and Merle are as well worn and as authentic as you can get for this song.
TRUE DAT TOWNES :{
Long live Townes.

Too bad Townes had such a hard life.
