I am sure that this is not completely correct, but it is close enough and since 
there are no submissions for this song I felt compelled to post SOMETHING since 
this is an incredible song that deserves to be played. Jamey Johnson holds to the 
true outlaw traditions of the Highwaymen members during their origional careers - 
definetely worth checking out! P.S. This is my virgin post so be kind!
