"Outlaw Man" as written by and David (us 1) Blue....
I am an outlaw, I was born an outlaw's son
The highway is my legacy
On the highway I will run
In one hand I've a Bible

In the other I've got a gun
Well, don' you know me
I'm the man who won
Woman don't try to love me

Don't try to understand
A life upon the road is the life of an outlaw man

First left my woman, it was down in Santa Fe
Headed for Oklahoma, I was ridin' night and day
All of my friends are strangers
They quickly come and go

And all my love's in danger
'Cause I steal hearts and souls
Woman, don't try to love me
Don't try to understand a life upon the road is the life of an outlaw man
Ooh

Woman, don't try to love me
Don't try to understand
A life upon the road is the life of an outlaw man

Some me call me Abel
Some men call me Cain,
Some men call me sinner, Lord
Some men call me saint

Some say there's a Jesus
Some men say there ain't
When you got no life to lose
Then there's nothin' left to gain
Outlaw man
Outlaw man

    General CommentThe whole Desperado album is about the Dalton gang. The Dalton's were brothers and I guess their father was a criminal too. He is saying that a woman who has fallen in love with him need to come to her senses; life with an outlaw like Bill Dalton would be too hard for her.
