    Lyrics

    Well I live out in Southern Arizona
    I followed an abandoned railroad track
    Trains they used run from Bisby out to Juarez
    But the copper mines are closed and the trains ain't comin' back
    This here's the of stolen ponies
    Rattlesnakes and poison water wells
    Each god-forsaken mile leads right to heaven
    But tryin' to please that woman
    Was hell

    [Chorus]
    Put me on the next thing smokin'
    Put me on the next train out of here
    This heart ain't made for bein' broken
    Well she ain't my conductor and she ain't my engineer
    Put me on the next thing leavin'
    The northern or the southern hemisphere
    Put me on the next thing smokin'
    Put me on the next train outta here I'm bound to ride

    I got my pride
    I'm bound to ride
    I'm bound to ride

    I made it to the ghost town of Hachita
    I got drunk in the Hachita General store
    I passed the place Geronimo surrendered
    Well Geronimo he just couldn't take it anymore
    I'll hitchhike from Columbus to El Paso
    Where I can catch an Amtrak or a freight
    I've walked 300 miles across these bad-lands(yeah) buddy
    I have made my great escape

    [Chorus]

    Put me on the next thing smokin'
    Put me on the next train out of here
    This heart ain't made for bein' broken
    Well she ain't my conductor and she ain't my engineer
    Put me on the next thing leavin'
    The northern or the southern hemisphere
    Put me on the next thing smokin'
    Put me on the next train outta here I'm bound to ride

    I got my pride
    I'm bound to ride
    I'm bound to ride
