Nebraska

I saw her standin' on her front lawn just twirlin' her baton
Me and her went for a ride sir and ten innocent people died


From the town of Lincoln Nebraska with a sawed-off .410 on my lap
Through to the badlands of Wyoming I killed everything in my path


I can't say that I'm sorry for the things that we done
At least for a little while sir me and her we had us some fun


The jury brought in a guilty verdict and the judge he sentenced me to death
Midnight in a prison storeroom with leather straps across my chest


Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir and snaps my poor neck back
You make sure my pretty baby is sittin' right there on my lap


They declared me unfit to live said into that great void my soul'd be hurled
They wanted to know why I did what I did


Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world 




"Nebraska" by Bruce Springsteen from the album "Nebraska".
