Renegade lyrics - Damn Yankees

(originally by Styx)

Oh mama, I'm in fear for my life
From the long arm of the law
Lawman has put an end to my runnin'
And I'm so far from my home
Oh mama, I can hear you a-cryin'
You're so scared and all alone
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows
And I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for the bounty
Nevermore to go astray
This will be the end today of the wanted man

Oh mama, I've been years on the lam
And had a high price on my head
Lawman said "Get him dead or alive"
Now it's for sure he'll see me dead

Yeah, mama, I can hear you cryin'
You're so scared and all alone
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows
And I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for the bounty
Nevermore to go astray
The judge will have today on the wanted man

Oh mama, I'm in fear for my life
From the long arm of the law
Hangman is comin' down from the gallows
And I don't have very long

The jig is up, the news is out
They finally found me
The renegade who had it made
Retrieved for the bounty
Nevermore to go astray
This will be the end today of the wanted man

The wanted man
And I don't wanna go
Mama, don't let them take me!
