Am G Dm Am
What in the world does your company take me for,
Am G
Black bandanna, sweet Louisiana,

Robbing on a bank in the state of Indiana,

She's a runner, Rebel and a stunner,

Condemned everywhere sayin' baby whatcha gonna?,

Looking down the barrell of a hot bell 45,

Just another way to survive
