His girl was down in Mexico just south of border line
Couldn’t wait to hold her in his arms, couldn’t wait to see her smile
He should be there by sundown, just another twenty miles

He could feel his heart poundin’, racing against time
He’d been ridin’ hard since sunrise, had the border on his mind
Just another twenty miles he’d be across the border line

He heard the riders comin’, he prepared to stand his ground
Heard one holler, “He’s cornered now, there’s nowhere left to run
He’s gonna meet his Maker in the Valley of the Sun.”

Another twenty miles, just another twenty miles
The ends of the earth couldn’t have been worse than another twenty miles

He heard the sound of gunfire, felt the bullet sting
Heard the sound of his own words, heard more gunshots ring
“I’ll go down in a blaze of glory before they’ll ever take me in

My girl is down in Mexico just south of border line
Can’t wait to hold her in my arms, can’t wait to see her smile
I’ll be there by sundown, just another twenty miles.”

He heard the riders comin’, he prepared to stand his ground
Heard one holler, “He’s cornered now, there’s nowhere left to run
He’s gonna meet his Maker in the Valley of the Sun.”

Another twenty miles, just another twenty miles
The ends of the earth couldn’t have been worse than another twenty miles

He heard angels singing, thought he heard his name
Was he alive or dead … he wondered as he prayed
Well, what’s the difference when you’re dyin’, they’re both the same

His girl was down in Mexico just south of border line
Couldn’t wait to hold him in her arms, couldn’t wait to see his smile
He took his last breath in the Valley, “Just another twenty miles.”
Took his last breath in the Valley, “Just another twenty miles.”

Another twenty miles, just another twenty miles
The ends of the earth couldn’t have been worse
Than another twenty, ’nother twenty, ’nother twenty miles

Wild Horses
soulful, evocative production, atmosphere, grand burst on the chorus, great backing vocals by Ray and Mary Jo Bailey Lyell, a sonic tapestry with a back beat, and eerie air-choir, could be "hey Joe" chapter 2, so close to the border, so far, kudos...
