​My Life Of Crime

This song is by Pierce Pettis and appears on the album Making Light Of It (1996).

I have been an outlaw
All my grownup life
Just ask my former in-laws
Just ask my former wife

Living from a suitcase
Standing in the rain
You can keep the house, baby
I will keep the change

And there have been some changes
I will testify
Still it's just another chapter in my life of crime
In my life of crime

I have held some people up
I have robbed the stage
With my trusty six-string
I have made them pay

They smile and give me money
They smile and give me praise
I make out like a bandit
Then I steal away

To a lonely hideout
That no one can find
Making plans for my next caper
In my life of crime
In my life of crime

I chose this life
As much as it chose me
I know I'm an outlaw
But there is honor among thieves

I have seen my posters
Hanging on the wall
I have stayed just out of reach
Of the long arm of the law

Of the law of averages
Of the law of fate
I know my days are numbered
The law must be obeyed

And though I stay two steps ahead
He's just two steps behind
Making sure I never rest in my life of crime
In my life of crime
