The Criminal

Inspired by actual events, this is my outlaw tale in three parts.

Lyrics

Part I

I am a criminal
you see me comin, better hide your kids
the world would be much safer
if I was behind bars for what I did

It was a long, dusty highway
I was dressed in black, a loan wolf on the road
That's when I saw the red lights in my rear view
and I shoulda run, if only I had known

I pull aside
my pulse is pounding
my mind is racing through all I've done
He taps the glass
while I scan my options,
should I confess or beg and plead or should I run?

I am a criminal
you see me comin, better hide your kids
the world would be much safer
if I was behind bars for what I did

Part II

Oh officer, what is my crime?
Or are you just trying to make a dime?
If I am truly such a bad, bad person
then maybe I should be doin' time

(solo & police officer encounter)

Part III

Oh officer
don't take me money
cause I'm just trying to feed my kids
I'm not a threat
to public safety
but thanks to you I am about to flip my lid
