Wanted man in California
Wanted man in Buffalo
Wanted man in the Kansas City
Wanted man in the Ohio

Wanted man in Mississippi
Wanted man in ol' Cheyenne
Wherever you might look tonight
You might see this wanted man

I might be in Colorado
Or Georgia by the sea
Working for some man who may not
Know who I might be

And if you ever see me coming
And if you know who I am
Don't you breathe it to nobody
'Cause you know I'm on the lamb

Wanted man by Lucy Watson
Wanted man by Jeannie Brown
Wanted man by Nellie Johnson
Wanted man in this next town

Well I've had all that I wanted
Of a lot of things I've had
And a lot more than I needed
Of some things that turned out bad

I got side tracked in El Paso
Stopped to get myself a map
Went the wrong way in Pleura
With Juanita on my back

Then I went to sleep in Shreveport
Woke up in Abilene
Wonderin' why I'm wanted
At some town half way between

Wanted man in Albuquerque
Wanted man in Syracuse
Wanted man in Tallahassee
Wanted man in Baton Rouge

There's somebody set to grab me
Anywhere that I might be
And wherever you might look tonight
You might get a glimpse of me

Wanted man in California
Wanted man in Buffalo
Wanted man in the Kansas City
Wanted man in the Ohio

Wanted man in Mississippi
Wanted man in ol' Cheyenne
Wherever you might look tonight
You might see this wanted man
