Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson Sing Pancho and Lefty

Let's be honest, is there anything better than a Merle Haggard / Willie Nelson duet? No, we didn't think so. 

Merle and Willie have blown us away with their hit song, "Pancho and Lefty". The duo released the song in 1983 from their collaboration album, Pancho & Lefty. The album was a mega-hit (no surprise there) and of course hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums chart. 

We can't get enough of this country music album! Really though, how could anyone not love this collaboration? From all of the amazing tunes, "Pancho and Lefty" really stands out to us. The song was originally written and recorded by Towns Van Zandt in 1972. The song gained some serious fame, as it was covered by various artists throughout the years. "Pancho and Lefty" even claimed a spot on the Top 100 Western Songs of All Time, a list made by the Western Writers of America

Check out the video to hear this awesome classic country song, and you'll be glad you did!

Pancho and Lefty Lyrics

Livin on the road my friend, is gonna keep you free and clean
Now you wear your skin like iron
Your breath as hard as kerosene
You weren't your momma's only boy, but her favorite one it seems
She began to cry when you said goodbye
And sank into your dreams
Pancho was a bandit boy, his horse was fast as polished steel
He wore his gun outside his pants
For all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico
Nobody heard his dyin words, ah but that's the way it goes

All the Federales say, they could've had him any day
They only let him slip away, out of kindness I suppose

Lefty he can't sing the blues all night long like he used to
The dust that Pancho bit down south ended up in Lefty's mouth
The day they laid poor Pancho low, Lefty split for Ohio
Where he got the bread to go, there ain't nobody knows

All the Federales say, they could've had him any day
They only let him slip away out of kindness I suppose

The boys tell how old Pancho fell, and Lefty's livin in cheap hotels
The desert's quiet, Cleveland's cold
And so the story ends we're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but save a few for Lefty too
He only did what he had to do, and now he's growing old

All the Federales say, they could've had him any day
They only let him go so long, out of kindness I suppose

A few gray Federales say, they could've had him any day
They only let him go so long, out of kindness I suppose
