Law man--I'm afraid you just walked in here at the wrong time
My old man's gun has never been fired
But there's a first time & this could be
This could be the first time

Law man
You know you look to be a lot younger than me and
I'd hate to shoot a baby
You've got a long way to go before you're old & slow
And it could be
It could be a good time if you change your mind
Well I'm tired and sweet from making love
And it's just too late
You'll have to wait
Bring your business around here in the morning

Well I've heard your line
& you've heard mine
& I'm just too tired to take a side
Bring your business around here in the morning
Don't you want to be easy look there
Let some of the things you see go on by or
You can burn them into your brain go on home
Don't you see the children, they're just like you
They want everything to be fine but they let it slide
And the laughing lets you know that smiling breaks the rules

Law breaker you know it could be me
& if you had your way we'd all be down
Under the face of a clock that's just too old to be wound
& you can see now the old hands won't move around
One way or the other,
Fool card brother this could be,
This could be, the first time.
