Em                                                             G    Dsus2
Scatter gun blast, tens in the air, half a million in a burlap sack
      Em                                       G            Dsus2    Em 
Y'all have a nice day as we make our way to the Caddy in the ally out back
             Em                                                 G   Dsus2
See when the times get hard some good old boys turn to a life a sin
           Em                                              B7             Em 
We're like Robin Hood, we're just twice as good but we can never go home again


Well I grew up singing Amazing Grace in a little white church in the woods
My momma prayed hard for all her boys but her praying didn't do a bit of good
The sheriff and a banker man came to push us off of our land
Now we're six feet deep and my brothers and me we can never go home again


Chorus:
C       G          D                Em 
Lord forgive me, I know just what I do
          C               G                D                    Em 
I'll take what I need and then I leave the rest to my momma and you
         C                    G                             D                     Em
And that tin roof cabin might not have been heaven but it's closer than I've ever been
    C                 G                 B7              Em 
God bless an outlaw's weary soul, I can never go home again

Sometimes I dream of that old front porch and my momma patching up a quilt
While my brothers and me lay around in the shade of that live oak tree on the hill
Now it's hide-out shacks, better watch your back and cover every track of where you've been
A thousand wrongs will never make it right, I can never go home again

Chorus

Scatter gun blast tears a ten inch hole through an empty burlap sack
As I say my peace for my brothers and me as my whole world fades to black
Here's three new graves underneath the shade of that live oak tree on the hill
Overlooking momma's porch with a fresh coat of paint and a shiny new Coup De Ville

Chorus 2:
Lord forgive me, I know just what I've done
I've been through hell and found myself on the wrong end of a gun
And that tin roof cabin might not have been heaven but it's closer than I've ever been
God bless an outlaw's weary soul, I thought I'd never make it home
God bless an outlaw's weary soul, I guess I finally made it home again
