Kenny Wagner's Surrender I am sure you have heard my story From "The Kenny Wagner Song": How down in Mississippi I took the road that's wrong. It was down in Mississippi Where I murdered my first man, When the sheriff there at Leachville For justice took his stand. Then I went from Mississippi To the state of Tennessee. Two men went down before me Ere they took my liberty. Then I wandered through the country, But I never could find rest, Till I went to Texarkana, Away out in the West. Again I started drinking, And again I pulled my gun And within a single moment The deadly work was done. The sheriff was a woman, But she got the drop on me. I quit the game and surrendered, Gave up my liberty. DT #779 Laws E8 From Hudson, Folksongs of Mississippi Collected from Elizabeth Reynolds SOF apr97
