(Bob McDill)

Once I had a heart cold as ice,
Love to me was only for fun.
I’d make a mark for each broken heart
Like notches on the butt of a gun.

Once I had a trick up my sleeve
And a reputation all over town.
I was heartless and cold wherever I’d go,
I shot down every young girl I found.

Yes, I used to be a moonlight bandit.
I used to be a heartbreak kid.
Then I met you and the next thing I knew,
There I was, shot full of love.

Well, who’d have thought that someone like you,
Could take a desperado like me,
But oh here I am I’m as meek as a lamb,
My bleeding heart there at your feet.

Yes, I used to be a moonlight bandit.
I used to be a heartbreak kid.
Then I met you and the next thing I knew,
There I was, Oh, shot full of love.

Yes, I used to be a moonlight bandit.
I used to be a heartbreak kid.
Then I met you and the next thing I knew,
There I was, Oh, shot full of love.
