Down in Savannah With the moonlight in my eye I put a bullet between my baby's breasts And I left her there to die I went back to my motel I laid down in my bed With my.44 still smoking underneath my head.
I got to thinking about the deed that I'd done I knew I was in trouble, I knew I had to run My gut told me to get out as fast as I could But I was laughing at Lady Luck For loving me so good
Well I finally got around to leaving I pulled out all the stops I was long gone by evening I was miles from the cops I was miles out of trouble when I tripped up on my guilt I went back to bury my baby Who the day before I'd killed
When I got back to town, boy, was I surprised My baby had escaped me There was no body where she died I turned around to leave town and guess who was still alive Yup, my baby and her pistol pointed right between my eyes
Well I probably should've apologized And begged her for my life, But I said I'd have shot you town ten more times Before I ever made you my wife And I skinned my steel quickly I put it up to her head Two shots rang through the city when I shot my baby shot me dead.
