                A                       D

I saw her standin on her front lawn

             A                 D

Just a-twirlin her baton

              G                     D

Me and her went for a ride sir

       A                                 D

And ten innocent people died

 

                 A                            D

From the town of Lincoln Nebraska

             A                             D

With a sawed of .410 on my lap

                          G           D

Through to the badlands of Wyoming

             A                          D

I killed everything in my path

 

/ A - - - / D - - - /

 

          A                 D

I can’t say that I’m sorry

              A                   D

For the things that we done

             G               D

At least for a little while sir

            A                             D

Me and her we had us some fun


        A                                D

The jury brought in a guilty verdict and the

 A                                      D

Judge he sentenced me to death

       G                       D

Midnight in a prison storeroom with

                A                      D

Leather straps across my chest

 

                          A                             D

Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir

          A                           D

And snaps my poor head back

                G                     D

You make sure my pretty baby

             A                         D

is sittin’ right there on my lap

 

/ A - - - / D - - - /

 

              A                   D

They declared me unfit to live

                        A                               D

Said into that great void my soul’d be hurled

                          G                          D

They wanted to know why I did what I did

                                             A                       D

Well sir I guess there’s just a meanness in this world
