    Long Arm of the Law

    In Cumberland Kentucky
    On a cool autumn evening
    Billy lay in love with Marianne
    She was a rich judge's daughter
    He was a son of a miner
    But that night their love was more than they could stand
    The judge said to his daughter,
    “That son of that coal miner
    Is someone you'd do well to leave alone.”
    She knew her dad so well
    She knew she couldn't tell
    But the truth was bound to show before too long
    Their love had started growing on its own

    You can't outrun the long arm of the law
    No, you can't outrun the long arm of the law

    Billy placed his hand on Mary
    And felt the baby moving
    Kissed her, and said "I'll see you when I can"
    The judge had made a promise
    When he caught up with Billy
    He'd send him far away from Marianne
    The whole town knew he'd do it
    Too many times he'd proved it
    To at least a hundred men behind the wall
    He'd smile behind that frown
    And when he brought that gavel down
    He called himself the long arm of the law
    And he'd set his mind on seeing Billy fall

    In a hot and humid mine shack
    The mid-wife pulled the sheet back
    And placed cool damp towel on Marianne
    Billy's eyes were wide with wonder
    From the spell he was under
    When she placed the newborn baby in his hands
    He didn't hear the siren
    Just the baby crying
    That miracle of love was all he saw
    When the door came crashing down
    And Billy turned around
    He felt the heart and soul inside him fall
    He stood face to face
    With the long arm of the law

    You can't outrun the long arm of the law
    No, you can't outrun the long arm of the law
    You can hide out for a while
    He says with a smile
    But you can't outrun the long arm of the law

    Seemed like everybody down in Cumberland Kentucky
    Came out that day to see poor Billy's trial
    The court was called to order
    There sat the judge's daughter
    She looked so proud, holding Billy's child
    When they brought Billy to him
    The judge just looked right through him
    As he held that Holy Bible in his hand
    Then he smiled at his grandson
    And his eyes cut back to Billy
    He said "I think this time
    The law will understand.
    Son, I sentence you to life with Marianne"

    You can't outrun the long arm of the law
    No, you can't outrun the long arm of the law
    He said to Billy with a smile
    I know you hid out for a while
    But you can't outrun the long arm of the law
