    Every Friday evening about sundown
    Ole' Black Jack Fletcher and Mississippi Sam
    Come ridin' their mules and leading their hounds
    Down to my place
    They holler "Hey son" have you got a drink
    Gonna make it hard on you if you ain't

    I'd grin and point to a jug coolin' in the spring
    They turn the hounds loose and let'em run
    Drink a little whiskey and have a lot of fun
    Talk about the days when they were younger than nowadays

    Talk about women young and old
    It was hard to believe all the stories told
    Wonder how they to be as old as they are now
    Well Black Jack Fletcher and Mississippi Sam
    Fought together in Vietnam
    Mean as hell but they say, "Yes ma'am" to your momma

    They gambled away all the money they made
    Knowing they was never gonna change their ways
    Living out every single day like another wasn't comin'

    Well Ole' Black Jack Fletcher was an ornery man
    Mississippi Sam didn't give a damn
    They'd steal a lady from a man while he was lookin'
    Well there ain't no doubt they was both outlaws
    Turnin' yellow corn into alcohol
    But they never hurt no one who didn't need a hurtin'

    Black Jack Fletcher and Mississippi Sam
    Always getting in and out of a jam
    Makin' up their own law of the land, while a runnin'
    They knew life was just a luck of the draw
    So they played a game with the local law
    Laughin' and sayin' a catchin' comes before a hangin'

    Now I wouldn't take nothin' for those days
    Every now and then I visit their graves
    And as the moon hangs in the haze
    I have me a drink to Fletcher and Sam
