    Song Lyrics / K / Kinky Friedman / Pretty Boy Floyd Lyrics
    (woody guthrie)

    Gather round me children, a story i will tell
    About pretty boy floyd, the outlaw, oklahoma knew him well.

    ??twas in the town of shawnee on a saturday afternoon
    With his wife beside him in a wagon it was into town they rode.

    Well, a deputy sheriff called him in a manner rather rude
    Using vulgar words of language and his wife she overheard.

    Well, pretty boy grabbed a log chain, the deputy grabbed his gun
    And in the fight that followed, he laid that deputy down.

    He took to the woods and timbers, he lived a life of shame,
    Every crime in oklahoma they laid on to his name.

    He took to the river boaters long the north canadian river shore
    And many a starving farmer he opened up his door.

    They tell about a stranger, the same story goes
    How pretty boy paid their mortgage and he saved their little home.

    Others tell about a stranger who came to beg a meal
    And underneath his napkin, he left a thousand dollar bill.

    Into oklahoma city, it was on a christmas day
    Come a whole wagonload full of groceries and a note on which did say:

    ??you say that i'm an outlaw, you say that i'm a thief,
    Well, here's a christmas dinner for your families on relief.??

    Through this world i've rambled, i've seen many funny men,
    Some will rob you with a six-gun and some with a fountain pen.

    But as through your lives you travel, boys, as through your lives you roam
    You won't never see no outlaw drive a family from their home.
