    "Delaware Taggett And The Outlaw Boys" Lyrics

    The Hollies

    Young girls and porches are filling out
    Tempers and torches are burning
    Brown is the colour of town
    living in thunder

    Hair on my top lip now I'm a man
    I so often hear and feel it
    Nice paying the price for being kept under

    Mama says don't hang around that front gate too long
    Boys like you who stay too late are surely gonna go so wrong
    But Mama there's safety in numbers

    It's the first time I've ever felt strong
    Delaware Taggett and the Outlaw Boys
    Adding a laugh to the Broadway noise
    Slipping your mind where your mind don't wanna go

    Off-duty porters lay sleeping wives
    On-duty daughters are finding
    why just touching a boy gives a thrill like a shiver

    Whispers and shadows are moving fast
    No prizes given to people
    last drowned in the past down on the river
