At last I have caught up with you and you're a sight to see Could this really be my outlaw lover JJ Sneed Could a woman with a painted face and pretty sweet disguise Turn your heart against me with her evil cunning eyes her evil cunning eyes JJ it's been you and me right from the very start And ever job we ever pulled I'd always done my part We agreed we'd stick together until the bitter end It was my understanding we were whole lots more than friends A whole lot more than friends And it was me that kept you on when nights were dark and cold But I guess I didn't look like much in these old ragged clothes But you said it didn't matter because you love me that a way You said that no one else could ever steal your heart away, steal your heart away Do you recall the Union Bank we robbed in Franklin Town And as we made our getaway the sheriff gunned you down And I doctored up your bullet wounds and nursed you while you sit But now you have betrayed me is that the thanks I get is that the thanks I get Oh yeah JJ I'm thinking now of how it all begun Of all the times we've robbed and killed with our trustworthy gun Why we stood off a possy once JJ just you and I But now you have betrayed me and for that you're going to die Yeah for that you're going to die The good old days are over as we stand here in the rain JJ I'm going to shoot you now I hope you feel no pain I hear hoofbeats of the horses, horses on my trail I guess I'll join you soon but for now JJ farewell for now JJ farewell
