Long Arm Of The Law
Written by Roger Bowling & Billy Edd Wheeler
Recorded by Kenny Rogers
Album: Daytime Friends - The Very Best Of Kenny Rogers (1993)

(No Capo)

Intro.:  (D) x 4 bars

In (D)Cumberland, Kentucky, on a (Bm)cool autumn evening
(D)Billy lay in (G)love with Mari-(D)anne
She was a rich judge's daughter, he was a (Bm)son of a miner
But that (E)night their love was more than they could (A)stand

The (D)judge said to his daughter, "That (Bm)son of that coal miner
Is (D)someone you'd do (G)well to leave a-(D)lone"
She (G)knew her dad so (A)well, she (D)knew she (F#m)couldn't (G)tell
But the (D)truth was bound to (G)show before too (D)long
Their love had started (G)growing (A)on its (D)own

You (D)can't outrun the (A)long arm of the (Bm)law (A)(G)
No, you (A)can't outrun the long arm of the (D)law

Billy (Eb)placed his hand on Mary and (Cm)felt the baby moving
(Eb)Kissed her, and said "I'll (Ab)see you when I (Eb)can"
The (Eb)judge had made a promise, when (Cm)he caught up with Billy
He'd (F)send him far away from Mari-(Bb)anne

The (Eb)whole town knew he'd do it, too (Cm)many times he'd proved it
To at (Eb)least a hundred (Ab)men behind the (Eb)wall
He'd (Ab)smile behind that (Bb)frown and when he (Eb)brought that (Gm)gavel (Ab)down
He (Eb)called himself the (Ab)long arm of the (Eb)law
And he'd set his mind on (Ab)seeing (Bb)Billy (Eb)fall

In a (E)hot and humid mine shack, the (C#m)mid-wife pulled the sheet back
And (E)placed cool damp (A)towel on Mari-(E)anne
Billy's eyes were wide with wonder from the (C#m)spell he was under
When she (F#)placed the newborn baby in his (B)hands

He (E)didn't hear the siren, (C#m)just the baby crying
That (E)miracle of (A)love was all he (E)saw
When the (A)door came crashing (B)down and (E)Billy (G#m)turned a-(A)round
He (E)felt the heart and (A)soul inside him (E)fall
He stood face to face with the (A)long arm (B)of the (E)law

You (E)can't outrun the (B/D#)long arm of the (C#m)law (B)(A)
No, you (B)can't outrun the long arm of the (E)law
You can (A)hide out for a (B)while, he (E)says with a (A)smile
But you (B)can't outrun the long arm of the (E)law

(F) Seemed like everybody down in (Dm) Cumberland, Kentucky
(F) Came out that day to (Bb)see poor Billy's (F)trial
The court was called to order, (Dm)there sat the judge's daughter
She (Gm)looked so proud, holding Billy's (C)child

When they (F)brought Billy to him, the (Dm)judge just looked right through him
As he (F)held that Holy (Bb)Bible in his (F)hand
Then he (Bb)smiled at his (C)grandson and his (F)eyes cut (Am)back to (Bb)Billy
He said "I (F)think this time the (Bb)law will under-(F)stand
Son, I sentence you to (C)life with Marianne"

You (F)can't outrun the (C/E)long arm of the (Dm)law (C)(Bb)
No, you (C)can't outrun the long arm of the (F)law
He said to (Bb)Billy with a (C)smile, I know you (F)hid out (Am)for a (Bb)while
But you (C)can't outrun the long arm of the (F)law

(Tag)
No you (C)can't outrun the long arm of the (F)law -----
