Lyrics:
He lost his mind today
       He left it out back on the highway
       On "65"

     She loved him yesterday
       Yesterday's over
       I said okay
       That's all right
       Time moves on
       That's the way
       We live an hope to see the next day
       That's all right

     Sometimes these things they are so easy
       Sometimes these things they are so cold
       Sometimes these things just seem to rip you right in two
       Oh no man don't let 'em get ta you

     She loved him yesterday
       He laid her sister
       She said O.K.
       An that's all right
       Buried her things today
       Way back out deep
       Behind the driveway
       And that's all right

     Sometimes these women are so easy
       Sometimes these women are so cold
       Sometimes these women seem to rip you right in two
       Only if you let 'em get to you

     Ya get out on your own
       And you/take all that you own
       And you/forget about your home
       And then you're/just fuckin' gone

     There's no logic here today
       Do as you got to, go your own way
       I said that's right
       Time's short your life's your own
       And in the end
       We are just
     DUST N' BONES


Information:
This is the second track on the album and was written by Slash, Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan. It is the first song on the album that is fully sung by Stradlin and the first song to feature Dizzy Reed on piano [Wikipedia].

Quote:
And Izzy has this, like, very wry sense of humour, man. He’s got this song about...(half-singing the lyrics) : « She lost her mind today, got splattered out on the highway, I say that’s OK... » (laughs) ! It’s called ‘Dust and bones’, I think, and it’s great. The rhythm reminds me of something like ‘Cherokee people’ by Paul Revere and the Raiders, only really weird and rocked out. It’s a weird song. But then it is by Izzy, what can I tell you? [Stick To Your Guns by Mick Wall; Kerrang, 21st and 28th of April 1990]

'Dust N' Bones' performed live in St. Louis, 1991:
