A great folk song by the supergroup Cry Cry Cry. As it was not on the youtube, hence the upload. Here are the lyrics and chords:


C#m E
We made Oklahoma a little after three
B C#m
Randy his brother Bob in my old GMC

We had some moonshine whiskey E
Some of Bob's homegrown B C#m
We were so messed up we didn't know if we were drunk or stoned
C#m E
Randy was a sad sack tall kinda frail B C#m
Bob was a ravin' maniac, crazier than hell E
They'd been kicked outta high school several years ago B C#m
For kickin' over porta-cans at the 4H rodeo
C#m E
Since then they done their little dance right outside the law B C#m
Popped twice in Oklahoma and once in Arkansas C#m E
And I don't know what possessed me to want to tag along B C#m
Cause I was raised a Christian and I knew right from wrong
A E
Right or wrong black or white
B C#m
Cross the line you're gonna pay
E B C#m
In the dawn before the light
A B C#m
Live or die by shades of gray
C#m
We stole two charolais heifers E
From Randy's sweetheart's pa B C#m
And sold them at the livestock sales outside of Wichita
C#m E
We got nine hundred dollars and never did suspect B C#m
The world of hurt we'd be in once we cashed that check E
Next day we heard the story on the local radio B C#m
And made our plans that very night to go to Mexico E
And I swear we would've made it if it wasn't for the shine B C#m
I got sick about the time we crossed that Kansas line
A E
Right or wrong black or white
B C#m
Cross the line you're gonna pay
E B C#m
In the dawn before the light
A B C#m
Live or die by shades of gray

SOLO




C#m E
I was lying in the bar ditch praying I would die B
When a light came on above us C#m
And a voice called from the sky E
A half dozen unmarked cards came screeching to a halt B C#m
They grabbed Bob he started screaming that it was my fault E
There were men and dogs and helicopters flying all around B
They had the brothers on the pickup hood C#m
And me on the ground E
Then Bob flew all to pieces but Randy he held tight B C#m
When a black man in a suit and tie stepped into the light

He told his men to turn us loose E
And they put down their guns B
He said these are just some sorry kids C#m
They ain't the ones
A E
Right or wrong black or white
B C#m
Cross the line you're gonna pay
E B C#m
In the dawn before the light
A B C#m
Live or die by shades of gray
C#m E
They left us by the roadside downhearted and alone B C#m
Randy got behind the wheel said boys I'm going home E
So we turned round and faced our fate hung over but alive B C#m
On that morning Oklahoma late April ninty five
