    To the rich man's bright lodges
    I ride in this wind
    On my good horse, I call you
    My shiny black Bess

    To the playhouse of fortune
    To take the bright silver
    And gold you have taken
    From somebody else

    And as we go riding
    In the damp foggy midnight
    You snort, my good pony
    And you give me your best

    For you know and I know
    Good horse 'mongst the rich ones
    How oftimes we go there
    An unwelcome guest

    I never took food
    From the widows and orphans
    And never a hardworking man I oppressed

    So take your pace easy
    For home soon like lightning
    We soon will be riding
    My shiny black Bess

    No fat rich man's pony
    Can ever overtake you
    And there's not a rider
    From the east to the west

    Could hold you a light
    In this dark mist and midnight
    When the potbellied thieves
    Chase the unwelcome guest

    I don't know, good horse
    As we trot in this dark here
    That robbing the rich
    Is for worse or for best

    They take it by stealing
    And lying and gambling
    And I take it my way
    My shiny Black Bess

    I treat horses good
    And I'm friendly to strangers
    I ride and your running
    Makes my guns talk the best

    And the rangers and deputies
    Are hired by the rich man
    To catch me and hang me
    My shining black Bess

    Yes, they'll catch me napping one day
    And they'll kill me
    And then I'll be gone
    But that won't be my end

    For my guns and my saddle
    Will always be filled
    By unwelcome travelers
    And other brave men

    And they'll take the money
    And spread it out equal
    Just like the Bible
    And the prophets suggest

    But men that go riding
    To help these poor workers
    The rich will cut down
    Like an unwelcome guest
