Pretty Boy Floyd Songtext

Well gather 'round me children
A story I will tell
About Pretty Boy Floyd, the outlaw
Oklahoma knew him well

It was in the town of Shawnee
On a Saturday afternoon
His wife beside him in a wagon
As into town they rode

And along come a deputy sheriff
In a manner rather rude
Using vulgar words of language
His wife, she overheard

And Pretty Boy grabbed a long chain
The deputy grabbed a gun
And in the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down

Then he ran through the trees and bushes
And lived a life of shame
Every crime in Oklahoma
Was added to his name

He ran through the trees and bushes
On the Canadian River shore
And many a-starving farmer
Opened up his door

It was in Oklahoma City
It was on a Christmas day
A whole carload of groceries
With a letter that did say

"You say that I'm an outlaw
You say that I'm a thief
Well, here's a Christmas dinner
For the families on relief"

As through this life you travel
You'll meet some funny men
Some'll rob you with a six-gun
And some with a fountain pen

As through this life you ramble
As through this life you roam
You'll never see an outlaw
Take a family from their home
