Lone Ranger, get off of your horse
Tonto left for home long ago
I guess he knows when to call it quits
To call it quits

The desert's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, it will do
The prairie's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, now, it will do

Hey Rifleman, what happened to you?
Your eye was sharp, and your aim, it was true
Did those outlaws finally catch up to you and overrun this town?

The desert's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, it will do
The prairie's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, now, it will do

Hey Sheriff, I've heard of your loss - the deputy was a good man
Guess we've all got our deserts to cross
I say start walking while you still can

The desert's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, it will do
The prairie's not the best place in the world, but it'll do, now, it will do
