Long Arm Of The Law - text

In Cumberland Kentucky
On a cool hot evening
Billy lay in love
with Marrianne

She was a rich judge's daughter
He was a son of a miner
But that night their love was
more than they could stand

The judge said to his daughter
That son of that coal miner
Is someone you'll do hell
to leave alone

She knew his dad so well
She knew she couldn't tell
But the truth was bound to
show before too long

Their love had started
growing on its own

You can't outrun the long
arm of the law
No, you can't outrun the
long arm of the law

Billy placed his hand on Mary
And felt the baby moving
Kissed her, and said I'll see
you when I can

The judge had made a promise
When he caught up with Billy
He'd sent him far away
from Marianne

The whole town knew he'd do it
Too many times he'd proved it
To at least a hundred men
behind the wall

He'd smiled behind that frown
And when he brought
that gavel down
He called himself the long
arm of the law
And he'd set his mind
on seeing Billy fall

In a hot humid mine shack
The mid-white pulled the sheet back
And placed cool damp towel
on Marianne

Billy's eyes were wide with wonder
From the spell he was under
When she placed the newborn
baby in his hands

He didn't hear the siren
Just the baby crying
That miracle of love
was all he saw

When the door came crashing down
And Billy turned around
He felt the heart
and soul inside him fall
He stood face to face
With the long arm of the law

You can't outrun the
long arm of the law
No, you can't outrun
the long arm of the law
You can hide out for a while
He says with a smile
But you can't outrun
the long arm of the law

Seemed like everybody down
in Cumberland Kentucky
Came out that day to see
poor Billy's trial

The court was called to order
There sat the judge's daughter
She looked so proud
Holding Billy's child

When they brought Billy to him
The judge just looked
right through him
As he held that Holy Bible
in his hand

Then he smiled at his grandson
And his eyes cut back to Billy
He said ´I think this time
The law will understand
Son, I sentence you to live
with Marianne

You can't outrun the long
arm of the law
No, you can't outrun the long
arm of the law

He said to Billy with a smile
I know you hide out for a while
But you can't outrun the long
arm of the law
No you can't outrun the long
arm of the law
