Ten Miles Deep

Hand me up my shotgun Maggie Mae
The devil's come to take your boy away
I've been spotted on the run
But I'll be waiting when they come
Hand me up my shotgun Maggie Mae

I was born a poor man's only son
Ain't my fault I grew up on the run
I did my time as a working man
But fate kept bloodstains on my hands
I was born a poor man's only son

CHORUS:
When I'm dead, put me ten miles deep
When I'm dead, put me ten miles deep
Brother when you lay me down
Down beneath the cold hard ground
When I'm dead, put me ten miles deep


I keep my pistol by my head at night
Lordy I can't seem to do no right
My hometown they know my name
Killed a man and won my fame
Keep my pistol by my head at night

When I'm dead just put me ten miles deep
When Jesus comes he won't disturb my sleep
I knew it when they shot me down
I felt the flames from underground
When I'm dead just put me ten miles deep

CHORUS
Brother when you lay me down
Down beneath the cold hard ground
When I'm dead, put me ten miles deep
