I wrote this song using the names of songs from a few of my favorite country and western artists. If you read the lyrics below I have included a verse that we didn't' record.


Outlaw Hero’s
R. Cain 2007

(A)My hero’s have (G) always been (A) Outlaws
(A)Ever since the (G) time I was a (A) child
(A)They taught me about (G) living when my (D) father up and left (A) me
(A)I found strength and (G) solace in their (A) songs

Johnny told me how to walk that line
Don’t take your guns to town and you’ll be fine
Don’t get off that train of love for the home of the blues
For if you do you’ll cry, cry, cry

Waylon said that this might be the last time
That it’s not suppose to be that way
That a slow moving outlaw has no place left to go
But it really doesn’t matter anymore

Hank warned of that mansion on the hill
How a cheating heart will tell on you
If you’re window shopping while you’re out there Honky Tonkin’
You’ll end up on that Lost Highway

Extra Verse:
Merle tells me that my momma tried
George showed me how to drink a beer
Willie said ita all right to roll a big ol’ fatty
John Denver taught me nothing at all
