Wandering Outlaw

 

I'm drinking my whiskey and cleaning my gun

The thoughts in my head they just keep going on

Where in my life, where the fuck it went wrong

Soon they'll hang me and I'm dead and gone

 

I once was a little boy so peaceful and calm

That boy is now dead, he's been killed at dawn

Riding and shooting is all that I want

But this is what happened, my life fell apart

 

I left my sweet home at the age of sixteen

My parents said you'll vanish and never to be seen

But that's what I wanted for all of my life

Just wandering around, yeah no house and no wife

But what I knew then, what I know now

I regret the decision to fuck all around

Cause it cost me ten years, alone behind bars

And soon I will be with the moon and the stars

 

I see the gallows, up on the hill

But when I look closer, it's the man that I've killed

I asked him forgiveness and said it was God's will

He smiled at me friendly and said God don't exist

 

I left my sweet home at the age of sixteen

My parents said you'll vanish and never to be seen

But that's what I wanted for all of my life

Just wandering around, yeah no house and no wife

But what I knew then, what I know now

I regret the decision to fuck all around

Cause it cost me ten years, alone behind bars

And soon I will be with the moon and the stars
