​Big John

This song is by Kofi and appears on the album Black... With Sugar (1989).

Big John
Big John runnin'
Big John

Big John was a bad man
So the people say
But I know that his family, yeah
They needed bread
You see, he tried to raid the bank
But the plan went wrong, so wrong
Instead a man laid dead
Now the sheriff wants your head

Say, Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Yeah

Sheriff, have some sympathy, hey, now
He tried to feed his family, ooh...
Won't you please try and understand
Big John was a desperate man
I know he tried to raid your bank
But the plan went wrong, so wrong
Instead a man laid dead, oh, so dead
Now the sheriff wants your head

Say, Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Yeah

Big John
Big John runnin'
Big John, yeah, yeah

You see, he tried to raid your bank
But the plan went wrong, so wrong
Instead a man laid dead
Now the sheriff wants your head

Say, Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
The sheriff's comin', comin', comin'

Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
The sheriff's comin', comin', comin'

Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
'Cause the sheriff's comin', comin', comin', comin'
Big John runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
The sheriff's comin', comin', comin'...
