38 Special - Sheriff's County Line Lyrics

  • In a place called Sheriff's County
  • There's a story goin' round
  • And it echoes through the swamps of FLA
  • About the sheriff and his daughter
  • That he guarded with his life
  • With a shotgun just to keep those wolves at bay
  • But she was a fire beyond control
  • No chains could hold her captive soul
  • Now the legend grows as days unwind
  • About passions strong and justice blind
  • To the reckless deeds that hide behind
  • The Sheriff's County Line
  • Now the sheriff had a deputy that he treated like a son
  • But he warned Calhoun not to see Estelle
  • 'Cause he knew that she was trouble
  • Had her mama's wild side
  • And if he slipped he'd make his life a living hell
  • But flesh is weak and passion's strong
  • There in the backwoods around dawn
  • They say it was a murder in the first degree
  • When the sheriff caught them in the heat
  • Just one shot killed the deputy
  • On the Sheriff's County Line
  • One step closer to midnight
  • Sittin' there just waitin' to die
  • The young preacher asks if he's ready
  • To make his peace and speak his mind
  • He said “Blood is thicker than water”
  • And my temper must've got out of hand
  • And just before they threw the switch on Old Sparky
  • He said “I'd do it all over, Do it all over again”
  • Now Estelle is softly crying at the foot of her daddy's grave
  • As the preacher reads the bible verse out loud
  • You could see her eyes a wanderin'
  • As he turns another page
  • And she pulls him ever gently from the crowd
  • She tells him,
  • Oh she feels so all alone
  • And begs him to walk her safely home
  • And the madness starts all over again
  • Calhoun's curse is the preacher's end
  • Cause the forbidden fruit is the sweetest sin
  • On the Sheriff's County Line
