[Verse 1]
              Aadd9            D
I saw her standing on her front lawn
         Aadd9         D
Just twirling her baton
          G             D
Me and her went for a ride, sir,
       Aadd9                  D
And ten     innocent people died
 
 
[Verse 2]
             Aadd9                  D
From the town     of Lincoln, Nebraska,
                 Aadd9       D
With a sawedoff 410 on my lap
                  G           D
Through to the badlands of Wyoming
            Aadd9             D
I killed everything in my path
 
 
[Verse 3]
Aadd9 D          Aadd9            D
       I can't say    that I'm sorry
              Aadd9          D
For the things     that we done
            G            D
At least for a little while, sir,
          Aadd9                  D
Me and her     we had us some fun
 
 
[Verse 4]
           Aadd9                     D
Now, the jury brought in a guilty verdict,
             Aadd9                     D
And the judge     he sentenced me to death
        G               D                          Aadd9               D
Midnight in a prison store-room with leather straps     across my chest
 
 
[Verse 5]
                     Aadd9                  D
Sheriff, when the man     pulls that switch, sir,
         Aadd9                 D
And snaps     my poor head back
           G              D
You make sure my pretty baby
                      Aadd9         D
Is sittin' right there     on my lap
 
 
[Verse 6]
Aadd9 D Aadd9 D        Aadd9            D
               They declared me unfit to live,
                  Aadd9                     D
Said into that great   void my soul'd be hurled
                  G                 D
They wanted to know why I did what I did
                                  Aadd9                 D
Well, sir, I guess there's just a meanness in this world

                  [Verse]
I saw her standing on her front lawn
Just a-twirling 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 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

Now, 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 head 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 want to know why I did what I did
Well, sir, I guess there's just a meanness in this world
