lyrics

Please please please forget me
Don't remember the words that I've said
Forget my name when I'm gone
I'm a scoundrel son
and I'm already dead

I was born on the Mississippi
and like that river I've rushed the corners
I've raged free
I had that gold just slipping through my fingers
but so was my woman
and when I found that man in my bed..

I think there's no road left to redemption
unless there's some way to raise the dead
I think I've burned every last one of these bridges
and every lawman alive knows my name
and has seen my face

Please please please forget me
Don't remember the words that I've said
Forget my name when I'm gone
I'm a scoundrel son
and I'm already dead

I was born in New York City
the only son of some country bumpkin millionaire
and I sat high and lively on that saddle
and I was high on more than life when I pulled my gun
Oh I think road left to salvation
unless there's some way to raise the dead
'cause I set fire to oil when I met my match
and every slick-backed gangster alive knows my name
and has seen my face

Please please please forget me
Don't remember the words that I've said
Forget my name when I'm gone
I'm a scoundrel son
and I'm already dead
-
I ain't got the time to pay for my sins
I have no means to make amends
so I'll die
change my name, move far away
I'm sorry my son
I'm a scoundrel
so I die
change my name, move far away
I'm sorry my son
I'm a scoundrel
-
Some say I was swept away in the Mississippi River
some say I was rolled up in a rug and tossed in the Hudson Bay
truth is I'll never die 'long as you tell my stories
truth is that when I die it'll say unknown on my grave

Please please please forget me
Don't remember the words that I've said
Forget my name when I'm gone
I'm a scoundrel son
and I'm already dead
