Renegade

Styx

Oh, 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-cryin', you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows, and I don't have very long (yeah)

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty

Nevermore to go astray
This'll 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; I was for sure he'll see me dead
Dear Mama, I can hear you a-cryin', you're so scared and all alone
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows, and I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty

Nevermore to go astray
The judge will have revenge today
On the wanted man

Oh, Mama, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows, and I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for a bounty

Nevermore to go astray
This'll be the end today
Of the wanted man
The wanted man

And I don't wanna go, no, no
Mama, don't let 'em take me!
Hey, hey
No, no, no, I can't go
