    Lyrics

    My daddy was an outlaw
    Mom died giving birth to me
    They both left me all alone when I was on bended knee
    If you don't like my story I suggest you turn the page
    I don't need no preachin' I ain't got no soul to save

    My name is Arkansas Dave Rudebaugh
    And this here's Tennessee Jack
    Don't you give us any lip now boy
    Or today will be your last
    When the bank was dry we said goodbye and walked out to the street
    When a cloud of bullets came tumbling down
    And took Tennessee to his knees

    I just stood there and watched him bleeding
    Like a fool out in the rain
    Didn't have time to think as I jumped through the banks front window pane
    Grabbed the teller in the blink of an eye and put a Colt up to his head
    Said careful son don't you try to run or tomorrow you'll wake up dead

    Chorus
    I've got to fly just like an eagle
    Free like a bird on the wind
    Hell fire and brimstone are comin' down on me
    Mister I was born of sin

    Sat down in the corner and I rolled a little home grown
    Said if I'm gonna die today I sure as hell ain't goin' alone
    So I ran out the bank shootin' I was two for two at first
    Then I felt a painful saound as a bullet tore my shirt

    Chorus
    I've got to fly just like an eagle
    Free like a bird on the wind
    Hell fire and brimstone are comin' down on me
    Mister I was born of sin

    I crawled back to the alleyway where I knew my horse was tied
    And thats where all the legends say Arkansas Dave Rudebaugh died
    But I was in a place so far from there in a time so long ago
    In the arms of a pretty little senorita on the Gulf of Mexico

    Chorus
    I've got to fly just like an eagle
    Free like a bird on the wind
    Hell fire and brimstone are comin' down on me
    Mister I was born of sin
