We were sent on a job
on a mountain up high.
Didn't know him at all.
He seemed like a nice guy.
He appeared to be tall
as he rode on his steed.
His eyes glistened
as he herded the sheep.
And I'll fry the bacon if you cook the beans,
and I'll fold the blankets if you wrap the meat,
and if you are naked, I'll throw you a sheet,
but only if you want me to...

As the day turned to night,
we would talk, we would fight.
We were playing our roles,
we sat around the fire.

And I rolled tobacco, and he packed his pipe,
and I let my mustache grow out to the side.
The heat from the day put the sweat in my eyes,
but it was so cold at night...
so we held each other and called it a fight.
Don't give a damn if it's wrong or it's right.
We used separate blankets but that was alright,
'cause we were both side by side,
'cause we both slept side by side,
'cause we were both drunk that night,
'cause we were both drunk that night.
Yes, I was so drunk that night.
