Le titre de cette chanson est aussi celui d’un film de Sam Peckinpah avec Jason Robards.
C’est Marianne Dissard qui chante avec Calexico (groupe composé de Joe Burns et John Convertino).
Ils ont dû se rencontrer à Tucson, Arizona.

I live out yonder where the snakes and scorpions run
got myself a little goldmine to bank on
but one day my heart sank when i saw madame in town
i knew her love would be the death of mine
l'amour passé, l'amour obsolète
pourquoi perdre sa vie à chercher l'or d'un coeur?
je ne me noierai pas dans ce désert mystique
je ferme mes comptes et je repars

do me a favor while i'm hanging here
take this gold and go and hide
Ne gigote pas, chéri, sur ta corde de pendu
don't worry i'll be free in no time

she promised me she would be there when i'd return
she didn't say she'd have a whole army there as well
she whispered, je t'aime baby as she fired that gun at me
Mais je n'ai plus le temps
i should've stayed way out yonder
better off with the scorpions and snakes
every act which has no heart will be found out in the end
guess i'm a little late this time
cause her love would be the death of mine
mine, all mine
