Jewel Thieves

I walked along the railroad tracks
Looking for gems tossed from the train
By jewel thieves getting rid of the evidence
Before the law caught up to them

I imagined the lawmen
Chasing the train on horseback guns blazing
Hanging on to their hats
And hollering “Yippee i-o-ki-ay”

And I watched that train disappear around the bend
Or was I the one around the bend
Because whoever heard of lawmen
Chasing crooks on a train hollering

“Yippee i-o-ki-ay”
Shouldn’t it have been
I suppose it's hard to say

But I better get back to work
If I have any hope of finding gems
Along these tracks
Which seem to go on forever
