Bernie Taupin — The New Lone Ranger lyrics

Do we need a new Lone Ranger
Fightin' on our side
Are we looking for a stranger
To give us one last ride

I heard them say the strip is dying
She's calling it murder one, no minor crime
Television stars
Falling from the sky
We have lived exciting lives
Y the game
Do you miss the singing cowboy
Will Hollywood ride again

Are we looking for a stranger
For one last ride
Do we want a new Lone Ranger
Fightin' on our side
If we need a second coming
To deal with danger
There's a shakedown or a showdown
For a new Lone Ranger

Only ghosts go walking on the wire
So don't cry baby it's only gunfire
One hundred horses
On a freeway west
Heading for the desert escaping death

Looking for a re-run
Of a long forgotten son
Do you think about the masked man
Or how the West was won

Are we looking for a stranger
For one last ride
Do we want a new Lone Ranger
Fightin' on our side
If we need a second coming
To deal with danger
There's a shakedown or a showdown
For a new Lone Ranger

How the West was won
Walk on the wire
This is is how the West was won
Walk on the wire
How the West was won

We're looking for a change
A chance to play the game
Do you miss the singing cowboy
Will Hollywood ride again

Are we looking for a stranger
For one last ride
Do we want a new Lone Ranger
Fightin' on our side
If we need a second coming
To deal with danger
There's a shakedown or a showdown
For a new Lone Ranger

Do we need a new Lone Ranger
Fightin' on our side
A hundred horses heading for the West
Are we looking for a stranger
To give us one last ride
There's a shakedown or a showdown
For a new Lone Ranger
