Johnathan East - Wanted Man Lyrics


Yeah, you know it really made me feel like a man
To hold a 38 special in the palm of my hand
Flying down the back roads in an ole Trans Am
It brought the bad side out of me
I was ready for the world and fresh out of high school
I just turned 18, I was nobody’s fool
And with my shades pulled down, son, I was looking so cool
Couldn’t have been more free
Well, in Jackson, Mississippi I robbed a liquor store
Told the man behind the counter, “Lay down on the floor”
That little stunt was my first offense
I’ve been running like a stray dog every day since.

(Chorus)
I’m an outlaw, I’m a rebel
I’m as sweet as an angel, and mean as the devil
I wish I could go back and change all the things that I’ve done
I’m a loner, I’m a maverick
I’m a young desperado with a nasty habit
Of making my living on the road with a smoking gun
See, I’m a wanted man, running out of places to run.

Now, I had to go out and change my name
I ditched that car for a red mustang
And I realized the world would never look the same
As I pulled out on the road
I spent all my money and I needed some more
Down went a few more convenience stores
And as I shot the lock off the register drawer
I wondered how far I’d go
I kept on riding, out into the night
I kept telling myself everything’s all right
Just keep on rolling ‘til I find a little town
A place to hide out while this all cools down.

(Repeat Chorus)

I was laying low in a south Texas town
Little motel room thought I couldn’t be found
And I said a prayer as the rain came down
And the wind began to blow
I was fast asleep in the middle of the night
When the cops came by, and they turned on their lights
When they broke down the door, and they read me my rights
They said, “Come on boy, let’s go”
Well, they put me in cuffs and they hauled me off to jail
They took everything I had and threw me in some cell
I guess there’s just a limit on how far you can go
But to the day I die everyone’s gonna know.

(Repeat Chorus)

Well, I’m a wanted man, running out of places to run.
