Know a little girl she drives me mad

She loves her outlaw but he don't love back

I feel bad 'cause she can't stay clean

The future looks bad, tell you what I see

Four black horses and a memory

Makin' money lyin' in bed 

Listen to the voices that are in her head

Main Street's dirty and the mud is dank

With her no good lover in front of the bank

Gonna take all the money and leave this town

But the lawdogs gonna track 'em down

When mornin' comes she hangs her head

Sittin' there smokin' a cigarette

G                F
Her skin is pale sittin' in jail
E                          |Eb    |
Hopin' someone will set her free

Explosions have rocked the jail

And all the sirens, they start to wail

The man in a duster, he runs inside

To grab that girl and take her for a ride

Police runnin' all over the place 

They lost that girl it's a big disgrace

(Add high counterpoint riff)

Yeah, gonna run, but you 'sho can't hide

Yeah, lawdogs
