lyrics

Well the deed is done
He holds the smokin' gun
And stands stands before the man on the judgement day
After livin' life the outlaw way

The preacher man's words that he heard
are ringing' true in his head
"You live the life, you'll live to have regret
'cause in the end you'll have to pay the debt"

He's been runnin' with the devil in the dark of night
Now the sun is comin' up and he can see the light
But it's too late now because the deal's been done
Long ago he gave his soul for the guns and gold
Now there's nowhere he can turn that's gonna save his soul
Cause there's a price to pay, a heavy price to pay
Livin' the Outlaw Way

For the sinnin' kind there will come a time
The music ends, you do the final dance
And then you turn and face the consequence
The preacher man's words that he heard are ringin' true in his head
The sinnin' kind will live to have regret
'cause in the end they'll have to pay the debt

He's been runnin' with the devil in the dark of night
Now the sun is comin' up and he can see the light
But it's too late now
Because the deal's been done
Long ago he gave his soul for the guns and gold
Now there's nowhere he can turn that's gonna save his soul
Cause there's a price to pay, a heavy price to pay
Livin' the Outlaw Way
