Am CWe made Oklahoma a little after 3
G AmRandy, his brother Bob and my old GMC
We had some moonshine whisky
Cand some of Bob's homegrown
Gwe were so messed up we didn't know
Amif we were drunk or stoned
CRandy was a sad-sack, tall kinda frail
G AmBob was a raving maniac, crazier than hell
CThey been kicked out of high school several years ago
G Amfor pushin over port-a-cans at the 4-H rodeo
Since then they've done their little dance
Cright outside the law
G Ampopped twice in Oklahoma, once in Arkansas
and I don't know what possessed me
Cto want to tag along
GCause I was raised a Christian
Amand I knew right from wrong
CHORUS:
F CRight or Wrong, black or white
G AmCross the line you're gonna pay
C G AmIn the dawn before the light
F G AmLive and die by shades of gray
We stole two Charolais heifers from Randy's sweetheart's paw sold them at the livestock sale outside of Wichita We got $900 and never did suspect the world of hurt we'd be in once we cashed that check next day we heard the story on the local radio made our plans that very night to go to Mexico I swear we would have made it if it wasn't for that shine I got sick about the time we crossed that Kansas line CHORUS I was laying' in the bar ditch prayin' I would die when a light come on above us and a voice come from the sky a half a dozen unmarked cars came screeching to a halt They grabbed bob, he started screamin' it was all my fault There were men and dogs and helicopter buzzin' all around they had the brothers on the pickup hood and me down on the ground Bob flew all to pieces but randy he held tight when a black man in a suit and tie stepped out into the light he told his men to turn us loose they put down their guns he said these are just some sorry kids, they ain't the ones CHORUS They left us by the roadside down hearted and alone Randy got behind the wheel said boys I'm going home We turned around to face our fate hungover but alive on that mornin' in late April, Oklahoma, 1995
F CRight or Wrong, black or white
G AmCross the line you're gonna pay
C G AmIn the dawn before the light
F G AmLive and die by shades of gray
F G AmLive and die by shades of gray
