They closed the road to Laramie
Slowly it came rain then snow then ice
I killed my engine and paced outside
Out in the soft gray light
Oh, oh, oh, no turning back

I called my doctor on his cell
The call went straight to voicemail
Oh, oh, oh, I thought of you

I called my doctor on his cell
The call went straight to voicemail
Oh, oh, oh, I thought of you

When I was stung by a scorpion
You crushed up some tobacco leaf for me
Pulled out from your Red Man pouch
Tthe Sioux had taught you all you knew
Oh, oh, oh, I do believe it's true
Oh, oh, oh, I do believe it's true

They cut you down with a single shell
A winchester "Double L"
Your switchblade fell and caught the light
Massacres are disguised as battles all the time
I do believe it's true, oh, oh, oh
I do believe it's true, oh, oh, oh
