LEVI STOCKE - The Stand (Original Song)

Original song I wrote about the final stand of John Ashley the notorious bank robber in Florida in the early 1900s they used to call the bandit. Getting back to my Southern roots with this one hope you like it. Cheers!

Lyrics :

 

Dust comin' over the hill

Dogs barking up the road

Looks like they done found me

God rest my soul

I've been on the run for so long now

Let me tell you son

There aint no peace in this here house

If you've known the things I've done

 

There aint no preacher man that can save me from myself

An outlaw on the run never deserved any help

And it looks as though this is it for me

 

Sheriff says "Boy there aint nowhere to hide,

And all those bullets with my name

They don't mean a thing"

You're surrounded as you can see

Not just here but all over Palm Beach County

 

There aint no preacher man that can save you from yourself

An outlaw on the run never deserved any help

And it looks as though this is it for you.
