Warren Zevon - My Ride's Here lyrics

I was staying at the Marriott with Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot, they were waiting for a train
The sky was full of carrion "I'll take the mazuma"
Said Jesus to Marion "That's the 3:10 to Yuma"

My ride's here
My ride's here
My ride's here
My ride's here

The Houston sky was changeless, we galloped through bluebonnets
I was wrestling with an angel, you were working on a sonnet
You said, "I believe the seraphim will gather up my pinto
And carry me away, Jim, across the San Jacinto

My ride's here
My ride's here
My ride's here
My ride's here

Shelley and Keats were out in the street
And even Lord Byron was leaving for Greece
While back in the Hilton, last but not least
Milton was holding his sides
Saying, "You bravos had better be ready to fight
Or we'll never get out of East Texas tonight
But the trail is long and the river is wide
And my ride's here"

I was staying at the Westin, I was playing to a draw
When in walked Charlton Heston with the Tablets of the Law
He said, "It's still the Greatest Story"
I said, "Man, I'd like to stay
But I'm bound for glory, I'm on my way

My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here

My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here

My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here

My Ride's Here
My Ride's Here
