Wanted Man Lyrics

Oh Mamma, I'm in fear for my life
from the long arm of the law
Law man has put an end to my running
And I'm so far from my home
Oh Mamma, I can hear you a crying
You're so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows
And I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
This'll be the end today
Of the wanted man

Oh Mama, I've been years on the lam
And had a high price on my head
Lawman said 'Get him dead or alive'
And it's for sure he'll see me dead
Dear Mama I can hear you cryin'
You're so scared and all alone
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows
And I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty
Never more to go astray
The judge'll have revenge today
OF the wanted man

Oh Mamma, I'm in fear for my life
from the long arm of the law
Law man has put an end to my running
