lyrics

Wanted Outlaw Cm- - - - - - Fm- - - - Cm- - - G7- Cm- G7-
by Jeremy Meyer

(horn)

I got a dead man for a father
I’ve been an orphan my whole life
Too much drinkin and a gamblin
Well it cost him and his wife

Well I made my way up on my own
Until the deputy took me in
Well I had grown up keen and I knew the woods
Like a tinker man knows his tin

(horn)

Well we would go out with the shadows
And though we knew our ways of sin
Well we’d burn and we’d pillage, ransack the whole village
Paid in gold or blood for their King

(horn)

And through these times of oppression you can see
A man stand and fights for what’s good
He held the devil between his fingers
And they called him Robin of the hood

(horn)

Well now through these woodlands we would follow
Well few signs though I saw
I found that man and his fellows waiting
I lost my life to a wanted outlaw
(bridge)
He stooped to the ground
He ran the dirt through his fingers
As he stood and looked around he saw
All the space between us
He knocked an arrow from his quiver
The only one he had left
Drew the sinew to his cheekbone and we
Breathed my last breath

(horn)

Well I guess its time to explain my story
He saw my eyes looked inside and could tell
My existence was scarred, my mind had grown hard
And my life had been a living hell

(horn)

(end on G7)
