She's Got To Go

© E. Patrick Johnson
Summer, 2003

I've got a woman who lives downtown
She went out one night and started messing around
She shot up the sheriff way down town
Playing with the sheriff's gun she shot him down


Now she's living a life of sin
Lord knows the trouble she's in
She should have stayed home I told her so
Now she's got the sheriff's gun and she's got to go

She's got to go… She's got to go… She's got to go

She stole her daddy's Lincoln and left that night
She wants the Manitoba border before day light
On a half a tank of petrol and a bottle of rye
She made that interstate like a tear in my eye


Now she's got her daddy's Lincoln and she's got to go

Service station in Hallock the call went out
There's a lawman on the highway gonna bring her in
By the side of the road the deed was done
He up-ended that Lincoln with six shots of his gun


Now my baby 's lived her life of sin
Lord knows the trouble she's been
She should have stayed home I told her so
She's got a tag on her toes and she's got to go
