Verse 1
Running round the outskirts of backwater nowhere town
She be waiting there with her short skirt wearing a frown
Jumped in her pickup man, freedom never felt so good
Screaming down the highway, and killed a man where he stood

Chorus 1
Law men following us everywhere
You can try to catch me kill me if you can

Shake yeah

Verse 2
We were just two crazy kids that had fallen in love
Terrorizing towns for their money or lack thereof
Never met a finer woman and I thank god every day
Lasted till the border where I shot her and I threw her away

Chorus 2
Judges at the gallows wanna see me swing
But my six shooters warmed up and ready to sing

Shake yeah

Verse 3
Caught me at the corner where I was standing trying to catch a ride.
But man did they learn that day I won’t go down without a fight.
Stood me on the platform and they’re acting like I give a damn
Pulling on the noose man all I could do was laugh

Chorus 3
They might have caught my body but they won’t get my soul
Leave it for the afterlife and god’s control

Shake yeah
