      About "Twenty Years"

      Lyrics for Dwight Yoakam - "Twenty Years"

      Hey look yonder, Henry, comes the sheriff
      And he's carrying a warrant in his hand
      Don't you run, poor old Henry, for he will shoot you
      Not long will you be a free man

      Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars
      For a crime that you did not do
      Yeah the lie she swore in that district court
      Has proved to be the ruin of you

      Tried to warn you, Henry, not to cross her
      Tried to tell you about her vengeful ways

      When you turned and left her for another
      She swore, Henry, that she'd make you pay

      Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars
      For a crime that you did not do
      Yeah the lie she swore in that district court
      Has proved to be the ruin of you

      Listen well, all you young rounders
      Heed the lesson poor old Henry never learned
      That even hell with all its fiery power
      Hath no fury like a woman's scorn

      Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars
      For a crime that you did not do
      Yeah the lie she swore in that district court
      Has proved to be the ruin of you

      Yeah the lie she swore in that district court
      Has proved to be the ruin of you
