All he had to his name was a suit case in hand Five whole dollars and no place to land Two shells in his rifle and a knife in his sack He found a women that before he did lack. (bridge) Her name was Virginia, she came from the west She took a train up from Baker to start something fresh North Colorado she thought was the best South California never stood the test. They went for a stroll down Muddy Creek Virginia sat down before she did speak She said I can't go on with you no more You have become such a bore. (bridge) He plunged a knife in her stomach and grabbed her feet And threw her into the waters so deep Now he's sitting in a cell and he's oh so cold He's gonna be there until he grows old.
