Lyrics ~
Judgement Day

 


I'm a wanted man in Dallas, I'm wanted up in Tennessee
The sheriff kept me running, but there wasn't no catching me
Till I spent too long in Georgia, should've left there, yes I know
I should have left there the first time my baby said "you better go"

Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way I won't hang
Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way on Judgement Day

I'm singing this song from years ago 'cause it keeps coming around
No disguise, no reason why I still lay my money down
In a bad dream once it vanished like a window broken in the night
And the verdict of the Lord was ringin' out, it was shinin' in the pale moonlight

Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way I won't hang
Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way on Judgement Day

I'll follow my drummer in a blaze of glory, go marching out when he goes
Wander down that lost highway, a vagabond on the road
It was daybreak in Alabama, I saw a window broken in the night
I wasn't gonna stay more than one more day, I'll be leaving in the pale moonlight

Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way I won't hang
Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way on Judgement Day

I'm a wanted man in Dallas, I'm wanted up in Tennessee
The sheriff kept me running, but there wasn't no catching me
Till I spent too long in Georgia, should've left there, yes I know
I should have left there the first time my baby said "you better go"

Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way I won't hang
Sadie, get the judge his whiskey, that's the only way on Judgement Day
