The stain on your carpet, the red on your shoes
Don’t mean nothing to someone with nothing to lose
They were there in the desert like the ranger who died
Thinking maybe he’d make it to the other side
While the wind it was barking and the night falling hard
I parked my pony in your other boy’s yard
And the gunfire like thunder and the blood flowing like booze
Oh Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues
Oh Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues

The black men and white men all stood in a row
While you brought down your victim in one deadly blow
You outsmarted the rain and the daylight so odd
Outsmarted his horse and outsmarted his god
And the bells started clanging and the bats started winging
On Cemetery Hill the beast started singing
There was furry in my gut and a hole in my chest
Oh, and Isabelle, Isabelle, I loved you the best
Oh, Isabelle, Isabelle, I loved you the best

In the typhoon white dragons appeared in my eye
And your yellowing sister, green goats in the sky
I grabbed for my rifle though I knew at the time
I was going down hard for another man’s crime
Like the ranger you murdered in your garter and heels
There are worse punishment and dirtier deals
But the deal I dealt had just one wild deuce
Oh, Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues
Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues

When my brain come back to me on a wild poppy pie
She was whistling an air so pure and so high
And the stain on your carpet and the red on your shoes
Don’t mean nothing to no one with nothing to lose
Oh, Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues
Isabelle, Isabelle, you give me the blues
