"Spirit Boy" as written by Christian Kane, Michael Eaton, Craig Eastman and Steve Carlson....
There's a little girl down south
And her daddy's got a ranch about as big as my town
And one day I swear I'm gonna go down there and get her out
From the letter that I got last fall
It says you know you're the one I love most of all
But My face is up on the sheriffs wall and there's reward signs posted up and down
The Red River Line that I cross out every night
Trying to find my heart and looking for a fight, and there were four guards
Standing on the wall I drew two six guns and I watched them fall, oh yeah
Well I came busting through them gates into a twelve gauge and a thirty-eight,
But I was quick on the draw and I got em all, yelled out to Rosa Bella,
And she came walking softly through the night,
With her hair so long looking at me with those big blue eyes,
Well I grabbed her hand and we ran to leave,
But her daddy came running from around a tree
And said ain't no way my daughters leaving here with no Cherokee
Well it might it reach into his surprise
I looked him deep in his buckshot eyes
And he had his hand on his gun but I was holding mine
And I'm runnin down this Indian highway
with a bottle of red
I've got a loaded gun and things are going my way for a change
Well you might think that I'm gonna be swinging from the trees
Although I'm a spirit boy...
Ain't nobody gonna catch me
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah and numerous other sounds
We made love that very night
Under a burnt auburn Cancun sky
And I guess now I'm a Mexican cause in Texas I'm a wanted man
She got up in a long white gown
For the man that shot her daddy down
Somewhere around in the heat of the night there was a shot
And I'm running down this Indian highway
With a bottle of red
I've got a loaded gun and things are going my way for a change yeah
Well you might think that I'm gonna be swinging from a tree
Although I'm a spirit boy
Ain't nobody gonna catch me
Yeah I'm a spirit boy
Ain't nobody gonna catch me
Yeah I'm a spirit boy
Ain't nobody gonna catch me
Yeah....

    General CommentI love this song, easily my favorite on the Kane album. One of those great storytelling songs. He fights for the girl, gets her, and they run away together. I do wonder about the last line before the last chorus. It makes you wonder if she shot him, he shot her, or someone tracked them down. It leaves just enough room for the imagination to make it interesting. A great love story.
