Lyrics

Pistol-packin Mama:

Pistol-packin mama
Your baby's all alone
Pistol-packin mama
You're far away from home
Doing life in prison
For murder in the first degree
I know he had it comin'
But they'll never set you free

She felt betrayed
She felt denied
From the very start
All he did was lie
Can't blame the girl
For what she's done
He wound up on
The wrong end of her gun

Pistol-packin mama
Your baby's all alone
Pistol-packin mama
You're far away from home
Doing life in prison
For murder in the first degree
I know he had it comin'
But they'll never set you free

Married to a senator
You thought you had made
Sipping marguerites
And coladas in the shade
Until a thousand secrets
From that little book you found
Made you want to take that love
And just shove it in the ground

Pistol-packin mama
Your baby's all alone
Pistol-packin mama
You're far away from home
Doing life in prison
For murder in the first degree
I know he had it comin'

(Bridge)
So many mamas
So many babies
Hurt and abandoned
They all knew
Brothers and fathers
Should have done something
Why did the job get left up to you

Pistol-packin mama
Your baby's all alone
Pistol-packin mama
You're far away from home
Doing life in prison
For murder in the first degree
I know he had it comin'
But they'll never set you free

Set you free....
