Lyrics

I didn't mean to end his life I know it wasn't right I can't even sleep at night Can't get it off my mind I need to get out of sight Before I end up behind bars What started out as a simple altercation Turned into a real sticky situation Me just thinking on the time that I'm facing Makes me wanna cry 'Cause I didn't mean to hurt him Coulda been somebodies son And I took his heart when I pulled out that gun Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum Man down Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum Man down Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down In central station In front of a big ol' crowd Oh why oh why Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down In central station It's a twenty two I call her Peggy Sue When she fits right down in my shoes What do you expect me to do If you're playing me for a fool I will lose my cool And reach for my fire arm I didn't mean to lay him down But its too late to turn back now Don't know what I was thinking Now he's no longer living So I'ma bout to leave town 'Cause I didn't mean to hurt him Coulda been somebodies son And I took his heart when I pulled up that gun Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum Man down Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum Man down Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down In central station In front of a big ol' crowd Oh why, oh why Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down (Will you hear me now) In central station Look I never thought 'id do it Never thought I'd do it Never thought I'd do it Oh gosh What ever happened to me Ever happened to me Ever happened to me Why did I pull the trigger Pull the trigger pull the trigger boom And end a n**** end a niggs life so soon When me pull the trigger pull the trigger pull it pon' you Somebody tell me what I'ma what I'ma do Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum Me say one man down Rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum rum bum bum bum And I went downtown 'Cause now I'ma criminal criminal criminal Oh lord oh mercy now I am a criminal Man down Tell the judge please give me minimal Run out of town, none of them can see me now Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down In central station In front of a big ol' crowd Oh why oh why Oh mama mama mama I just shot a man down In central station
