STEVE EARLE lyrics - So You Wannabe An Outlaw
STEVE EARLE
"So You Wannabe An Outlaw"

So you wanna be an outlaw better take it from me
Livin' on the highway ain't everything it's suppose to be
Everybody reckons that they wanna be free
Ain't no body wants to be alone

Stumblin' in the alley at a quarter to three
Hollarin' after Sally, "Honey, what you trying to do to me"
Told me, "Go to hell, I'm going back to Tennessee"
I said, "Angel, you can never go home"

Never go home, never go home
If you wanna be an outlaw you can never go home

So you wanna be outlaw better listen up kid
Steal a million dollar and you have to keep it hid
Ain't no place to spend it in the desert if you did
And you can't take it with you when you go

Always something laying for you up around the bend
Everything that goes around comes back around again
You can't trust anybody, not a lover or a friend
Your momma, maybe, then you never know

Never do know (Never do know)
Never do know (Well, you never do know)
If you wanna be an outlaw then you never do know

So you wanna be an outlaw, son, you better think twice
You better not pout and you better not cry
'Cause there won't nobody give a damn about you when you die
But the Devil when he comes for his due

When you're standing at the cross roads
Don't you try to flag a ride
Don't you fall down on your knees
Don't you do what's already been tried
Hate to tell you but the only the left side
Is to sing the Devil out of the blues

Singin' the blues
Keep on singin' the blues
Sing the 'So-you-wanna-be-an-outlaw Blues'
Hey, hey
