Year Two, Week Forty-Two: “Public Enemies No. 1 and 2”

Lyrics:

She was playing in the front yard
with a lasso in her hand
when a Lincoln Continental pulled up
and out jumped a man, and he said
baby–my, my, my I got what you need
What you doing playing out here
and wasting your life
Come run away with me
I’ll be your man, you’ll be my wife
And she said maybe–my, my, my
Yes indeed

They ran ran ran
through the desert and the plains
They ran ran ran
Taking lives and taking names
They ran ran ran
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2

She had her first kiss
on the Cheatham County line
She killed her first man
at the liquor store on Highway 9
and said oh–my, my, my
the world is mine
Her father went on TV
He was saddened and amazed
Turn yourself in, Louise
This ain’t the girl I raised
And he said oh–why, why, why
This life of crime

They ran ran ran
through the desert and the plains
They ran ran ran
Taking lives and taking names
They ran ran ran
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2

The sheriff had a SWAT team
made of twenty hardened men
By the time it was all over
they were 16 soldiers thin
and I said oh–my, my, my
What a black day
Her man was killed but she survived
and vanished with the dust
From now I shall be
twice as bad for both of us
And she said oh–my, my, my
there’s hell to pay

They ran ran ran
through the desert and the plains
They ran ran ran
Taking lives and taking names
They ran ran ran
Public Enemies No. 1 and–
Ran ran ran
through the desert and the plains
They ran ran ran
Taking lives and taking names
They ran ran ran
Public Enemies No. 1 and–
Ran ran ran
through the desert and the plains
They ran ran ran
Taking lives and taking names
They ran ran ran
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2
Public Enemies No. 1 and 2

Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
