I'm for law and order, the way tha it should be.
This song's about the night they spent protecting you from me.
Someone called this outlaw, in some ol' magazine.
New York sent a posse down like I ain't never seen.

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand.
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.

Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand.
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.

We were wrapped up in our music, that's why we never saw,
The cars pull up, the boys get out and the room fill up with law.
They came pounding through the back door in the middle of the song.
They got me for possession of something that was gone, long gone.

Hey!

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand.
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand.
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.

Hahaha! Hell yeah!

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand.
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand.

Just a good ol' boy
Never meanin' no harm
Just a good ol' boy
Never meanin' no harm

    General Commentwow. i didn't know this song even existed until now. I don't see why there aren't any comments because it's a decently good cover (considering it was a live performance.)I don't remember who it was originally by though...

    Song MeaningThis song was written by Waylon Jennings. It is about his run in with the cops trying to get him on possession of coke(singin through the nose). but while his manager stalled them he went and flushed down the toilet(possession of something that was gone). It is a play off of him and some others being branded "outlaw country" because they were buckin the nashville system and doing their on thing.This by the way is documented in his autoiography.
