Paying the Fiddler
By Dub Miller and Matt Skinner

C C/B Am
Left a dead man in Chihuahua, now heís hiding out in Baja
in the sun and sand where no one knows the past
C C/B Am
of a long forgotten hero from a long forgotten time
an outlaw who has seen his better days
Am F
Now in Cabo senoritas, forgotten dreams and cheap tequila
maybe he might ease his wounded soul
C C/B Am
from a thousand revolutions, he must pay his retribution,
and make his peace with finally getting old

C7 F G C C/B Am
He said Iíve been to all four corners, and Iíve ridden all four winds
Am/G F G C
and Iíve had somewhere to go up Ďtill now
F G C C/B Am
heís the last of a dying breed, whoís seen all there is to see
and heís paying the fiddler now.
When the cold wind hit the Frio, it was time to leave Del Rio
Uncle Sam was calling him to fight
headlines say torpedoes, their like Houston mosquitoes
boys, pack your bags, weíre leaving here tonight
It was that Pacific Ocean where he first got the notion
that a mercenary lifeís the way to be
so he traded in his saddle and his favorite pair of boots
for the wind and sail and life upon the sea


In the spring of í45, he left MacArthurís side
and found himself entrenched in Panama
then on to Costa Rica, then to fight the Sandanistasí
then on to somewhere else I canít recall
Lines of latitude and longitude never made a bit of sense
to a man who made his living making war
itís a life lived by the peso and the crooked dollar bill
and the constant call of another distant shore


Now the setting western sun hides the secrets of the desert
a marichai band plays their last sad song
and old man pours a glass of rum and thinks about the past
and a future where he no longer belongs
As the tourists wander in he wonders can they see the sins
of the scars that his battered body bears
do they know of all the deeds heís done, or know of all the battles won
now heís too old to fight and no one really cares
