That's One You Owe Me (Cash Johnny)

There was a showdown at high noon reputations on the line It was the good guys and the bad guys I was eight and he was nine And I forgot to keep my back to the wall in Dodge that day And from somewhere behind me I heard him say "That's one you owe me I let you slide I can't back shoot a buddy it goes against my pride So like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun But just remember you owe me one" It was high school and football on two different teams I was good but he was better than I would ever be And when I finally crossed the goal line ahead of him that day As the crowd was goin' wild I heard him say "That's one you owe me I let you slide I can't back shoot a buddy it goes against my pride So like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun But just remember you owe me one" She was long and lean and pretty and soon to be his bride When she strayed into my arms one day with lovin' on her mind Well I was almost tempted by her soft touch and her sigh But the next time I saw him I could look him in the eye That's one you owe me I let you slide I can't back shoot a buddy it goes against my pride So like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun But just remember you owe me one That's one you owe me I let you slide I can't back shoot a buddy it goes against my pride So like two desperados we'll ride off in the sun But just remember you owe me one
