OUTLAW BLUES WORDS AND MUSIC
NOEL ESKEW & MARK WESLEY

JOHNNY MADE THE BLUE LIGHTS FLASH
EVERY TIME HE RAN OUT OF CASH
SWEET MARIE WAS ALONG FOR THE RIDE
LAWMAN TRIED TO SLOW ?EM DOWN
8 MILES OUT OF E-TOWN
JOHNNY?S FLYIN LOW & GETTIN HIGH

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE POURING RAIN
JOHNNY TRIED TO BEAT THE TRAIN
THE GATE CAME DOWN AND THE WHISTLE BLEW
LAWMAN HAD TOO MUCH AT STAKE
SHOOK HIS HEAD AND SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES
JOHNNY HIT THE GAS AND BUSTED ON THROUGH


HE HAD THOSE OUTLAW BLUES RUNNIN THRU HIS VEINS
MARIE BEGGED HIM,?PLEASE, BABY, AIN?T NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE?
JOHHNY SHRUGGED HIS SHOULDERS AND SAID ?WHAT HAVE I GOT TO LOSE??
HE HAD A BAD CASE OF BAD BOY SOUTHERN ALABAMA OUTLAW BLUES.


SITTING IN A MOTEL ROOM
OUTSIDE OF BATON ROUGE
JOHNNY WATCHED HIS BLUE SKIES TURN GREY
GOT HIMSELF A BIGGER GUN
MARIE SHE DIALED 911
SHE?S AFRAID THERE MIGHT BE HELL TO PAY

BY THE TIME THE POLICE CAME
OL? JOHNNY DIDN?T EVEN KNOW HIS NAME
BLAMED IT ALL ON THE WHISKY AND BEIN? HIGH
MARIE FELL, SHE CALLED HIS NAME
NOW JOHNNY?LL NEVER BE THE SAME
HE NEVER EVER MEANT FOR THAT GIRL TO DIE

BUT HE HAD THOSE OUTLAW BLUES RUNNIN THRU HIS VEINS
MARIE SHE BEGGED HIM,?PLEASE, PLEASE BABY, AIN?T NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE?
JOHHNY JUST SHRUGGED HIS SHOULDERS AND SAID ?WHAT HAVE I GOT TO LOSE??
HE HAD A BAD CASE OF BAD BOY SOUTHERN ALABAMA OUTLAW BLUES.


AND HE HAD NOTHIN BUT HIS SWEET MARIE TO LOSE
