Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Out of Hand

This song is by James Hetfield and appears on the compilation I've Always Been Crazy: A Tribute to Waylon Jennings (2003).

I'm for law and order, the way that it should be
This song's about the night they spent protecting you from me
Someone called this outlaw in some ol' magazine
New York sent a posse down like I ain't ever seen

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man? Yeah
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand

Don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand

We were wrapped up in our music, that's why we never saw
The cars pull up, the boys get out and the room fill up with law
They come pounding through the back door in the middle of our song
Yeah, they got me for possession of something that was gone, long gone

Hey, don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Oh, maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand

Yeah, don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand
Was singing through my nose what got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand

Aw, don't you think this outlaw bit has done got out of hand?
What started out to be a joke, the law don't understand
Was it singing through my nose that got me busted by the man?
Maybe this here outlaw bit has done got out of hand

Just a good ol' boy, never meaning no harm
Just a good ol' boy, never meaning no harm
Just a good ol' boy, never meaning no harm
Just a good ol' boy
