I’m a wanted man in California, I’m a wanted man in Buffalo
I’m a wanted man in Kansas City, I’m a wanted man in Ohio
I’m a wanted man in Mississippi, They want me in old Cheyenne
Wherever you may look tonight, you will see this wanted man.
I might be in Colorado or Georgia by the sea,
Working for some man who may not know at all who I might be.
If you ever see me comin’ and you know justa who I am,
Don’t breathe a word to no one buddy, ’cause I’m a wanted man.
Wanted man in Albuquerque, wanted man in Syracuse,
Wanted man in Tallahassee, wanted man in Baton Rouge,
Wanted man in Arizona, wanted man in Galveston,
Wanted man in El Dorado, this wanted man’s in great demand.
If you ever catch me sleepin’,
just see the price flashin’ ‘bove my head,
Well take look again my friend,
that’s a gun pointed at your head.
Wanted man by Lucy Watson, wanted man by Jesse Brown,
Wanted man by Nellie Johnson, wanted man in this next town.
Wanted man by the Boller(?) Sisters,
wanted man by Kid Callahan.
Hey Darlin’ don’t you tell me you don’t want me,
cause I’m a wanted man.
A wanted man who’s lost his will to live,
a wanted man who won’t lay down,
There’s a woman kneelin’ on my grave,
pushin’ daisies in the ground.
Wanted man in the Windy City, wanted man in Tennessee,
Wanted man in Broken Arrow, wanted man in Wounded Knee.
Wanted man in Jackson Town, Wanted man in El Passo,
I got bounties on my head in towns I wouldn’t ever think to go.
Wanted Man in Arizona, wanted man in Louisville,
Wanted man deep in Death Valley,
wanted man up in the Hollywood Hill.
If the Devil comes collectin’,
cause he doesn’t know I’m a wanted man,
he’d better wear a six gun on his hip
and hold another in his hand.
If you love the wanted man,
you best hold him while you can,
cause you’re gonna wake up one morninand find the man you wanted, he is gone.

This wanted man’s in the state of leavin’ ya baby,
