Last Stand In Open Country Lyrics

[WILLIE NELSON]
I was looking for America, in a western movie
saw a young gun slinger with something to prove
and I came lookin’ like anybody else,
I came searchin’ like anybody else
lookin’ for that golden calf

[KID ROCK]
and I came shooting for the stars, like any young blood
I found a fat cat city and crooked judge
I killed anything standing in my path
I killed anything till I laid my hands
laid ’em on that golden calf

[WILLIE NELSON]
CHORUS:
Now it’s our last sand in open country
this is my last chance to be with you
this is the last dance for this kind of man
I’m still lookin’ for somthing to prove

[BOTH]
I come around full circle, aged like an old dog
lookin’ at thim young bucks just green as frogs
but I ain’t layin’ back no time to laugh
I ain’t layin’ back
there’s new kids a comin gunning for that golden calf

I was was looking for America in a western movie
I saw pike bishop stridin’ through aqua verde
he was headin down that dusty path
headin down to that blood path
chasin down that golden calf

REPEAT CHORUS

[WILLIE NELSON]
but theres always someone faster

[KID ROCK]
someone quicker on the draw
someone with a hunger closin’ in

[BOTH]
some younger steppin’ up to be
the next outlaw

REPEAT CHORUS

oh I’m still looking for something to prove
this our last stand…
this our last stand…
this our last stand…
this our last stand…
