Oh Mama I'm in fear for my life
Lawman has put an end to my running
Oh mama I can hear you a crying
Hangman is coming down from the gallows

They've finally found me
Retrieved for a bounty
This will be the end today of the wanted man
Oh mama I've been years on the lam
Lawman said get him dead or alive

You're so scared and all alone
And I don't have very long
This jig is up the news is out
The renegade who had it made
Never more to go astray
On the wanted man
