Oh, well we run to the break of day
The old man groaned as we rolled away
The women wept as we sped on by [?]
We hung our heads low
As they raised their flags high

Then we grabbed our guns and shot away
He's killed all our brothers on a Saturday [?]
Our blood's dishonored and our wounds were deep [?]
Old Jesse James, well, he won't even take a peep [?]

So then we go on down that road
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
The girls said I die before I get old

The war is over and the graves were deep [?]
The sun was down just like my brother Rim's keep [?]
You burned my house and you raped my wife
I fall to my knees and I pray to the Lord
That I can kill that fucker tonight!

So then we go on down that road
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
Mama said I die before I get old

Oh, hey...their dad! [?]
Don't you know who I am?
No motherfucker, don't give a God damn!

So then we go on down that road
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
Breakin' your backs and breakin' your souls
Mama said I die before I get old

Mama said I die before I get old
Mama said I die before I get old
Mama said I die before I get old
Mama said I die before I get old
Mama said I die before I get old
