  • Dear Mama I'm in fear for my life
    From the long arm of the law
    Lawman has put an end to my running
    And I'm so far from my home
    Oh mama I can hear you a crying
    You're so scared and all alone
    Hangman is coming down from the gallows
    And I don't have very long

    This jig is up the news is out
    They've finally found me
    The renegade who had it made
    Retrieved for a bounty
    Never more to go astray
    This will be the end today of the wanted man

    Oh mama I've been years on the lam
    And had a high price on my head
    Lawman said get him dead or alive
    Now it's for sure he'll see me dead

    Oh mama I can hear you a crying
    You're so scared and all alone
    Hangman is coming down from the gallows
    And I don't have very long

    This jig is up the news is out
    They've finally found me
    The renegade who had it made
    Retrieved for a bounty
    Never more to go astray
    The judge will have revenge today
    On the wanted man
