JOHNNY CASH


That's One You Owe Me Lyrics

There was a showdown at high noon, reputations on the line,
It was the good guys and the bad guys, I was eight and he was nine,
and I forgot to keep my back to the wall and dodge that day,
and from somewhere behind me, I heard him say:

That's one you owe me, I let you slide,
I can't backshoot a buddy it goes against my pride,
so like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun,
but just remember, you owe me one.

It was highschool and football, on two different teams,
I was good but he was better than I would ever be,
and when I finally crossed the goal line, ahead of him that day,
as the crowd was going wild I heard him say:

That's one you owe me, I let you slide,
I can't backshoot a buddy it goes against my pride,
so like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun,
but just remember, you owe me one.

She was long and lean and pretty, and soon to be his bride,
when she strayed into my arms one day with loving on her mind,
well I was almost tempted by her soft touch and her sigh,
but the next time I saw him I could look him in the eye.

That's one YOU owe me, I let you slide,
I can't backshoot a buddy it goes against my pride,
so like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun,
but just remember, you owe me one.

That's one you owe me, I let you slide,
I can't backshoot a buddy it goes against my pride,
so like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun,
but just remember, you owe me one.
