  • I saw her standin' on her front lawn just twirlin' her baton
    Me and her went for a ride sir and ten innocent people died
    From the town of Lincoln Nebraska with a sawed-off .410 on my lap
    Through to the badlands of Wyoming I killed everything in my path
    I can't say that I'm sorry for the things that we done
    At least for a little while sir me and her we had us some fun
    The jury brought in a guilty verdict and the judge he sentenced me to death
    Midnight in a prison storeroom with leather straps across my chest
    Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir and snaps my poor neck back
    You make sure my pretty baby is sittin' right there on my lap
    They declared me unfit to live said into that great void my soul'd be hurled
    They wanted to know why I did what I did
    Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world
