Let’s start on the straight and narrow

In Sweden the number’s 80000. I don’t see how that saves any time!

There’s no helping some people!

It worked out well for everybody. Well, except maybe for Decca Records.

This was years before he walked down Electric Avenue.

Let’s cross over to the other side of the law now. That’s where you find the really interesting people.

Breakin’ rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fougth the law and the law won

I needed money ’cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin’ people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Sonny Curtis

I think I got this for a quarter. And I’m giving it to you for free.

I’ve got a friend named Stan. He’s not very smart.

If you’ll gather ’round me, children,
A story I will tell
‘Bout Pretty Boy Floyd, an outlaw,
Oklahoma knew him well.

It was in the town of Shawnee,
A Saturday afternoon,
His wife beside him in his wagon
As into town they rode.

There a deputy sheriff approached him
In a manner rather rude,
Vulgar words of anger,
An’ his wife she overheard.

Pretty Boy grabbed a log chain,
And the deputy grabbed his gun;
In the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down.

Then he took to the trees and timber
To live a life of shame;
Every crime in Oklahoma
Was added to his name.

But a many a starving farmer
The same old story told
How the outlaw paid their mortgage
And saved their little homes.

Others tell you ’bout a stranger
That come to beg a meal,
Underneath his napkin
Left a thousand dollar bill.

It was in Oklahoma City,
It was on a Christmas Day,
There was a whole car load of groceries
Come with a note to say:

Well, you say that I’m an outlaw,
You say that I’m a thief.
Here’s a Christmas dinner
For the families on relief.

Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

– Woody Guthrie

I wanted to talk about Jack the Ripper. I wanted to talk about Don King.

I fought the law and guess who won.

Well I’m running police on my back
I’ve been hiding police on my back
There was a shooting police on my back
And the victim well he wont come back

What have I done?

I been running monday tuesday wednesday
Thursday friday saturday sunday runnin
Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday
Saturday sunday

Yes, I’m running down the railway track
Could you help me? police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Wont you give me all the speed I lack

– Eddy Grant

That’s what we call a “way homer”.

We’re going to play one quarter of his recorded output.

You’re not going to believe this story.

That’s not just a law. That’s just common sense.

Whenever a law is broken you can be sure that we’ll be there. I’m not going to tell you which side we’re going to be on. But we’ll be there.
