Long Arm Of The Law
Recorded by Kenny Rogers
Written by Roger Bowling and Billy Ed Wheeler

C Am
In Cumberland Kentucky on a cool autumn evening
C F C
Billy lay in love with Marianne
Am C
She was rich judge's daughter he was a son of a miner
D7 G7
But that night their love was more than they could stand

C Am
The judge said to his daughter that son of that coal miner
C F C
Is someone you'd do well to leave alone
F G7 C F
She knew her dad so well she knew she couldn't tell
C F C
But the truth was bound to show before too long
F C
Their love had started growing on its own

G7 F
You can't out run the long arm of the law
C G7 C
No you can't out run the long arm of the law

Am
Billy placed his hand on Mary and he felt the baby's moving
C F C
Kissed her and said I'll see you when I can
Am C
The judge had made a promise when he caught up with Billy
D7 G7
He'd send him far away from Marianne

C Am
The whole town knew he'd do it to many times he'd proved it
C F C
To at least a hundred men behind the wall
F G7 C F
He'd smiled behind that frown and when he brought that gavel down
C F C
He called himself the long arm of the law
G7 C
And he'd set his mind on seeing Billy fall

Am
In a hot humid mine shack a mid-wife pulled the sheet back
C F C
And placed a cool damp towel on Marianne
Am C
Billy's eyes were wide with wonder from the spell he was under
D7 G7
When she placed the new born baby in his hands

C Am
He didn't hear the siren just a baby's crying
C F C
That miracle of love was all he saw
F G7 C F
When the door came crashing down and Billy turned around
C F C
He felt the heart and soul inside him fall
G7 C
He stood face to face with the long arm of the law

G7 F
You can't out run the long arm of the law
C G7 C
No you can't out run the long arm of the law
F G7 C F
You can hide out for a while he says with a smile
C G7 C
But you can't out run the long arm of the law

Am
Seemed like everybody down in Cumberland Kentucky
C F C
Came out that day to see poor Billy's trial
Am C
The court was called to order there sat the judge's daughter
D7 G7
She looked so proud holding Billy's child

C Am
When they brought Billy to him the judge just looked right through him
C F C
As he held that holy bible in his hand
F G7 C F
And he smiled at his grandson then his eyes cut back to Billy
C F C
And said I think this time the law will understand
G7 C
Son I sentence you to life with Marianne

G7 F
You can't out run the long arm of the law
C G7 C
No you can't out run the long arm of the law
F G7 C F
He said to Billy with a smile I know you hid out for a while
C G7 C
Ah but you can't out run the long arm of the law
G7 C
No you can't out run the long arm of the law
