  • I was dealin' up and down the highway
    Till they caught me with a heavy load
    They sentenced me to hard labor
    Workin' on the side of the road
    Now I don't deny I was guilty
    And I know I broke the law
    I was hungry and broke and couldn't see no hope
    And my back was up against the wall

    Now I'm right outside your window
    Honey open up and let me in
    I broke out of jail this mornin'
    And I ain't never goin' back again
    I just had to stop by for a minute
    And I can't stay long at all
    'Cause I gotta run you see I'm under the gun
    And my back is up against the wall

    I was shackled to a three-time loser
    A man named Jefferson
    One night we got to talkin'
    And I asked him what he'd done
    He said a man fell over my razor
    In the middle of a barroom brawl
    But don't you see it was him or me
    And my back was up against the wall

    Now I'm right outside your window
    Honey open up and let me in
    I broke out of jail this mornin'
    And I ain't never goin' back again
    I just had to stop by for a minute
    And I can't stay long at all
    'Cause I gotta run you see I'm under the gun
    And my back is up against the wall

    Now I'm right outside your window
    Honey open up and let me in
    I broke out of jail this mornin'
    And I ain't never goin' back again
    I just had to stop by for a minute
    And I can't stay long at all
    'Cause I gotta run you see I'm under the gun
    And my back is up against the wall
    I gotta run you see I'm under the gun
    And my back is up against the wall
    Yeah I gotta run you see I'm under the gun
    And my back is up against the wall
