  1. Marfa Lights

Lyrics

Gather ‘round here friends and neighbors, set the kids upon your knee / I’ve got a story to relate you may not believe / Now there’s witches, wizards, bats in belfries, vampires in the night / But out in ol’ West Texas, boys, they’ve got the Marfa Lights / On highway number ninety, out of Alpine heading west / Before you get to Marfa, you can put it to the test / Look to the horizon, down south towards Mexico / If you should see the lights come dancing…make you wish you weren’t alone / Old-timers say the lights were lanterns on the Rojas Ranch / Or sometimes Pancho Villa as he crossed the Rio Grande / Or maybe just a headlight down a lonesome desert road / On U.S. 67 from Shafter to Presidio / You can formulate opinions; this chapter’s far from done / It’s prob’ly just a locomotive on the Ojinaga run / Or maybe Villa’s ghost is riding lonely in the night / The only thing I’d bet on is they’re called the Marfa Lights / So gather ‘round here friends and neighbors, set the kids upon your knee / I’ve got a story to relate you may not believe / Now there’s witches, wizards, bats in belfries, vampires in the night / But out in ol’ West Texas boys, they’ve got the Marfa Lights / Out in ol’ West Texas boys, they’ve got the Marfa Lights.
