Well I am not the man I thought I’d be
I’ve fallen short of any sympathy
And I’ve been pleading with God to shed me free
But I’ve tired of all the human things
It’s time for me to leave

Oh I have tried and I have failed
And I have burned some bridges on my trail
And with a broken heart and a wounded knee
I’ve stumbled toward oblivion
But you followed me

Oh and the coyotes are always calling me
Oh with a mourning howl and cursed scream
And I feel their pain in everything
I believe that I was one of them
In some distant dream

Oh I have tried and I have failed
And I have burned some bridges on my trail
And with a broken heart and a wounded knee
I’ve stumbled toward oblivion
But you followed me

When the Lord made me, he made a loaded gun
And I have beat better men that should have won
But when they’re pleading from mercy from your right hand
I swear there’s not a single difference
Between a crook and an honest man

Oh I have tried and I have failed
And I have burned some bridges on my trail
And with a broken heart and a wounded knee
I’ve stumbled toward oblivion
But you followed me
