Verse:
First left my woman, it was down in Santa Fe.
Headed for Oklahoma, I was ridin' night and day.
All of my friends are strangers, they quickly come and go.
And all my love's in danger 'cause I steal hearts and souls.
Woman, don't try to love me, don't try to understand.
A life upon the road is the life of an outlaw man.

Chorus:
Woman, don't try to love me, don't try to understand.

C	   G		      Am                  Em
  A life upon the road is the life of an outlaw_________________ man.
