But a many a starving farmer
The same old story told
How the outlaw paid their mortgage
And saved their little homes.
Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.
And as through
your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.
