Tougher Than Leather Lyrics

Artist: Willie Nelson
Album: Tougher Than Leather

He was tougher than leather and he didn't care whether the sun shined or not
When a young kid in Cow Town wanted a showdown
He was careless or just maybe forgot
But he died in the gunfight blinded by sunlight never draw when you're facin' the sun
And old tougher than leather just carved one more notch on his gun

And when he turned to go the beautiful maiden knelt down
Where her dead sweetheart lay
And on his breast placed a rose while the townspeople stared in dismay
And old tougher than leather should've known better
But he picked up the rose in his hand
And the townspeople froze when his hands crushed the rose
And the rose petals fell in the sand

And old tougher than leather was a full-time go-getter
The grass never grew beneath his feet
From one town to another he would ride like the wind
But his mind kept going back to the street
Where a young cowboy died and a young maiden cried
And rose petals fell in the sand
And his heart had been softened by the beautiful maid
And he knew he must see her again

Well he went back to the town where it all had come down
And he searched but his search was in vain
He had wanted to find her and say he was sorry
For causing her heart so much pain
But one night he died from a poison inside
Brought on by the wrong he had done
And old tougher than leather had carved his last notch on his gun

Well he was burried in Cow Town along about sundown
Lookin' good in his new store-bought clothes
When the young maiden came over and knelt down beside him
And on his lapel placed a rose
There's a bird in the sky flying high flying high
To a place from a place changing skies changing skies
[ guitar ]
