David Blue – Outlaw Man lyrics

I am an outlaw
I was born an outlaw's son
My legacy is the highway
On the highway, I will run

In one hand, I've a Bible
In the other, I've got a gun
Well, don't you know me
I'm the wanted one

Woman, don't try to love me
Don't try to understand
A life upon the road is
The life of an outlaw man

Left my Marita
Was down in Santa Fe
Headed for San Francisco
In a '56 Chevrolet

All of my friends are strangers
Who quickly come and go
And all my love is in danger
I steal hearts and souls

[Chorus:] 2X

On the Barbary Coast
I'll even leave my sign
Blew me through the shadows
To commit my act of crime

Some people call me Abel
Some people call me Cain
Some people call me sinner, Lord
Some people call me saint
