  • As sure as the sun rises in the east
    Another gunman will come seeking my defeat
    Will he be as fast as me, are his nerves quiet and still
    Will he fall like all the rest ending his days upon boothill
    I'm an outcast riding into town alone
    I got wanderlust branded deeper than the bone
    I'm an outcast riding into town alone
    I got a lust for wandering branded deeper than the bone

    As I ride into the sunset to take another town
    Thank you for the invite, but I just can't settle down
    The dust that coats my hat is from a dozen towns
    Dust from shooting down another dozen clowns
    I'm an outcast riding into town alone
    I got wanderlust branded deeper than the bone
    I'm an outcast riding into town alone
    I got a lust for wandering branded deeper than the bone

    A drum beats for me, it's louder every day
    The cadence tells me that soon I'll meet
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day
    My judgment day, my judgment day

    A drum beats for me, it's louder every day
    The cadence tells me that soon I'll meet my judgment day
    Life's an endless showdown never knowing when they'll come
    I sleep with one eye open lying with my smoking gun
    My smoking gun
    The game I play has caused a lot of grief
    They were dying for fame, so I obliged them some relief
    I'm an outcast riding into town alone
    I got wanderlust branded deeper than the bone
    I'm an outcast with lightning in my hand
    I got wanderlust lost in no man's land
    I'm an outcast with lightning in my hand
    I got wanderlust lost in no man's land
    I'm an outcast with lightning in my hand
    I got wanderlust lost in no man's land
    I got a lust for wandering lost in no man's land
    I got wanderlust Writer/s: Dave Mustaine, Evarard S. Prager, Jimmy Degrasso, Martin Adam Friedman
