I'm two days shy of Alabama
I caught a freight train to Carolina
I'll be in Tihuana if I only can
I'll climb my way 'cross that Mississippi land

I've gotta stay two steps ahead
You know I can't get caught draggin' behind
I'm running from the long arm of the law
Oh, Mama I'm runnin' out of time

Two for too late
Two for tough break
When the man
When the man
If you cheated
Your freedoms fleeted
When the man
When the man
When the man comes,
He comes and takes you on home

Layin' low keepin' on the lamb
With the man right on my trail
Tryin' to lay back and keep my ass outta sight
Time for leavin' I've gotta high tail

Last stop at two below, I had to bail
Times looked bad, so I had to sail
I'm half starvin', half freezin' to death
But at least it's better than spendin' a cold night in jail

Two for too late
Two for tough break
When the man
When the man
If you cheated
Your freedoms fleeted
When the man
When the man
When the man comes,
He comes and takes you on home

I'm back out in front, rollin' through Austin
Ah, shit, this wasn't part of my plan
I got some wheels to Galvestan
When I heisted those Chevy vans

So, here I am at the Alamo
Is this how Custard felt on his last stand?
The man's gonna get you, he's gonna find you
Once you're tired, he'll take you in the palm of his hand

Two for too late
Two for tough break
When the man
When the man
If you cheated
Your freedoms fleeted
When the man
When the man
When the man comes,
He comes and takes you on home
When the man comes,
He comes and takes you on home
When the man comes,
He comes and takes you on home
