by Nevada Kerr

I'd rather love my enemy
Or kiss the nearest stranger
Than put up with your company
You put my soul in danger

It's courage that I sorely need
I've got accounts to settle
There's an outlaw deep inside of me
Whose heart is made of metal

Unflinching and undaunted
I set my wits to work
You're the one who wanted
This lonely world of hurt

Homebound on the rebound
I know you need the room
I've had it with this desert town
Despite the latest boom

Glad to be free of you
Unbroken and unbridled
I'll take the bounty due
And get back in the saddle
