I went down to the
Mary Cater Paint Store
I said, give me one of them
Smith and Wesson Magnum.44s

'Cause there's a man that the law let loose
And justice was not done
This man he killed my wife
And my only little son

I'll never forget the way he looked
All through the trial
He had a big name lawyer
And he had that smirky smile

Oh yeah, he got you off
On a technicality
But you'd have to grow wings
And fly to ever get away from me

'Cause I got rights
I got rights too
And this time there won't be no damn lawyers
And systems to protect you

But I'm gonna read you
I'm gonna read you your rights
You got the right to know that you're gonna go to hell

One of these black nights

And when the trial was over he had the nerve to say
"That's the way it goes"
I said, "Well, hoss, you better get you some corks
'Cause you're gonna have to plug up a few holes"

I guess he thought I was talkin'
Just to pass away time
But he kinda looks different
Now on his knees beggin' for his life

Hey, I got rights
I got some rights too
And this time there won't be no damn lawyers
And systems to protect you

But I'm gonna read you
I'm gonna read you your rights
'Cause I want you to know that you're gonna go to hell
One of these black nights

Yeah, and this time there ain't no damn lawyers
And systems to save you
