      About "Get Out Of Town Before Sundown"

      Lyrics for Buck Owens - "Get Out Of Town Before Sundown"

      Walkin' off the highway I'd been tryin' to catch a ride hungry and thirsty as a bear
      Not a penny in my pockets and I'd ran out of pride
      So I thought I'd try to bum myself a beer
      When up stopped a wellknown posse starin' down at me
      A big old shiny badge pinned on his vest
      He said if you ain't got no money and you ain't got no job
      Boy I'm placing you under arrest
      Or you can get out of town before sundown and don't you never come back
      Take your tambourine and your guitar string and move on down the track
      Don't like the way that you comb your hair the way you drawl you all
      And if you're not out of town before sundown you won't get out of town at all
      Well I hitchhiked down to Phoenix I was following the sun
      Prettiest place I think I've ever seen I met a sweet young lady but how was I to know
      That pretty thing was only seventeen
      Then I saw the red lights gleamin' and I heard the sirenes screamin'
      A sound that fills the bravest hearts with fear
      And that old sheriff didn't stutter when to me those words he uttered
      Boy don't let the sun set on you here
      You better get out of town before sundown...
