Doc Watson - Otto Wood The Bandit Lyrics

  • Step up, buddies, and listen to my song
  • I'll sing it to you right, but you may sing it wrong,
  • All about a man named Otto Wood,
  • I can't tell you all, but I wish I could.
  • He walked in a pawn shop a rainy day,
  • And with the clerk he had a quarrel, they say.
  • Pulled out his pistol and he struck him a blow,
  • And this is the way the story goes.
  • They spread the news as fast as they could,
  • The sheriff served a warrant on Otto Wood.
  • The jury said murder in the second degree,
  • And the judge passed the sentence to the peniteniary.
  • CHORUS: Otto, why didn't you run?
  • Otto's done dead and gone.
  • Otto Wood, why didn't you run
  • When the sheriff pulled out his 44 gun?
  • They put him in the pen, but it done no good,
  • It wouldn't hold the man they call Otto Wood.
  • It wasn't very long till he slipped outside,
  • Drawed a gun on the guard, said, "Take me for a ride."
  • Second time they caught him was away out west,
  • In the holdup game, he got shot through the breast.
  • They brought him back and when he got well,
  • They locked him down in a dungeon cell.
  • He was a man they could not run,
  • He always carried a 44 gun.
  • He loved the women and he hated the law,
  • And he just wouldn't take nobody's jaw.
  • He rambled out west and he rambled all around,
  • He met the sheriff in a southern town.
  • And the sheriff says, "Otto, step this way,
  • 'Cause I've been expecting you every day."
  • He pulled out his gun and then he said,
  • " If you make a crooked move, you both fall dead.
  • Crank up your car and take me out of town,"
  • And a few minutes later, he was graveyard bound.
