I didn't mean to end his life
I know it wasn't right
I can't even sleep at night
Can't get it off my mind
I need to get out of sight
Before I end up behind bars

What started out as a simple altercation
Turned into a real sticky situation
Me just thinking on the time that I'm facing
Makes me wanna cry

'Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
Coulda been somebodies son
And I took his heart when
I pulled out that gun
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man down

Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
In central station
In front of a big ol' crowd
Oh why oh why
Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
In central station

It's a twenty two
I call her Peggy Sue
When she fits right down in my shoes
What do you expect me to do
If you're playing me for a fool
I will lose my cool
And reach for my fire arm

I didn't mean to lay him down
But its too late to turn back now
Don't know what I was thinking
Now he's no longer living
So I'ma bout to leave town

'Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
Coulda been somebodies son
And I took his heart when
I pulled up that gun
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Man down

Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
In central station
In front of a big ol' crowd
Oh why, oh why
Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
(Will you hear me now)
In central station

Look I never thought 'id do it
Never thought I'd do it
Never thought I'd do it
Oh gosh
What ever happened to me
Ever happened to me
Ever happened to me

Why did I pull the trigger
Pull the trigger pull the trigger boom
And end a n**** end a niggs life so soon
When me pull the trigger pull the trigger pull it pon' you
Somebody tell me what I'ma what I'ma do

Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
Me say one man down
Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum
And I went downtown

'Cause now I'ma criminal criminal criminal
Oh lord oh mercy now I am a criminal
Man down
Tell the judge please give me minimal
Run out of town, none of them can see me now

Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
In central station
In front of a big ol' crowd
Oh why oh why
Oh mama mama mama
I just shot a man down
In central station
