 She was cuter th[Am]an a speckled pup just turned 21.[Dm]
 [Em]She had a lot of fun playing with my [Am]gun.
 [Am]Just before the sun come up she couldn't take no [Dm]more.
 [Em]She came undone crying crawling for the [Am]door.
 
 [Am]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Dm]anymore.
 [Em]And the only friends that's left is them behind them swinging [Am]doors.
 [Am]And it's hard to keep your trying when your back is to the [Dm]floor.
 [Em]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Am]anymore.
 
 [Am]Record people nowdays get too far off the [Dm]ground.
 [Em]Songs 'bout the backroads they never have been [Am]down.
 [Am]They go and call it country, but that ain't the way it [Dm]sounds.
 [Em]It's enough to make a renegade want to terrorize the [Am]town.
 
 [Am]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Dm]anymore.
 [Em]And the only friends that's left is them behind them swinging [Am]doors.
 [Am]And it's hard to keep your trying when your back is to the [Dm]floor.
 [Em]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Am]anymore.
 
 INTERLUDE: Am, Dm, Em, Am
 
 [Am]White lightning is the horse I ride pedal to the [Dm]floor.
 [Em]He blows fire from his nostrils and runs like Man-O-[Am]War.
 [Am]Someday we both may wind up in some junkyard on the [Dm]side.
 [Em]Until that day you bet your ass we're gonna win that [Am]ride.
 
 [Am]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Dm]anymore.
 [Em]And the only friends that's left is them behind them swinging [Am]doors.
 [Am]And it's hard to keep your trying when your back is to the [Dm]floor.
 [Em]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Am]anymore.
 [Em]And it's hard to be an outlaw who ain't wanted [Am]anymore.
