Abney Park - The Ballad Of Ranch Hand Robbie lyrics

On a dusty rock
Circled in a gypsum maine
Stood a tall ranch hand
Robbie was his name
He had fire in his eyes
And thick leather for skin
His fists and his gun were the only thing
protecting his kin

Another day's been spent
Soon I'll be broke
This life I've been burning
I've gone up in smoke
So Death when you take me
Don't take me slow
And don't put it off
When it's my time to go

He stood facing the fields
He could hear the beasts rush
He felt their foot falls
As they crushed under brush
"Get behind me child
Stay with your ma
I hope when you're grown
That you'll forget what you saw."

Another day's been spent
Soon I'll be broke
This life I've been burning
I've gone up in smoke
So Death when you take me
Don't take me slow
And don't put it off
When it's my time to go

He pulled out his guns
Dead bead between its eyes
But behind him he heard a noise
And he turned to his surprise
Where his family hid
Where he guarded all he had
Massive jaws of a massive beast
Swallowed up his wife and his lad

Another day's been spent
Soon I'll be broke
This life I've been burning
I've gone up in smoke
So Death when you take me
Don't take me slow
And don't put it off
When it's my time to go

Another day's been spent
Soon I'll be broke
This life I've been burning
I've gone up in smoke
So Death when you take me
Don't take me slow
And don't put it off
When it's my time to go

Another day's been spent
Soon I'll be broke
This life I've been burning
I've gone up in smoke
So Death when you take me
Don't take me slow
And don't put it off
When it's my time to go
