i see my face up on every wall
In the big saloon or on city hall
I'm a wanted man I'm a wanted man it seems
That the sheriff doesn't want me in this town
But I ain't scared
I'm gonna hold my ground
I gotta fight for the way I want to live...

I'm an outlaw baby
I'm the bandit that you made me
If you play your cards right I swear I'll cheat you lady
Then I'll run out of town
You'll never track me down I swear
So put up your dukes put a quarter in the juke box
Keep that old honky tonk playing a fighting song
Let the fists fly and the voices shout
I'm the type of cowboy that your mother warned you about

Sometimes I think that I really enjoy this
the gunfights, the looting, and the bar maids are gorgeous
But when I go hang out with the gang
Robbin' banks ain't been the same since
You and I
Well way back when
When you and I
Were more than friends
What happened back then

I'm an outlaw baby
I'm the bandit that you made me
If you play your cards right I swear I'll cheat you lady
Then I'll run out of town
You'll never track me down I swear
So put up your dukes put a quarter in the juke box
Keep that old honky tonk playing a fighting song
Let the fists fly and the voices shout
I'm the type of cowboy that your mother warned you about

She warned you about
But when the lights go down in this town
And when I'm absolutely sure that there is no one around
I like to sit and think of you

I'm an outlaw baby
I'm the bandit that you made me
If you play your cards right I swear I'll cheat you lady
Then I'll run out of town
You'll never track me down I swear
So put up your dukes put a quarter in the juke box
Keep that old honky tonk playing a fighting song
Let the fists fly and the voices shout
I'm the type of cowboy that your mother warned you about
