I didn’t wanna shoot that man
But he heard that I was fast
You know that liquor gave him the courage
To put a man to the ground
But nobody saw
I couldn’t claim no self-defense
So I took off with the morning sun,
Running from my sins

I ended up in every town
Where all the bad men go
And they’ve been running just like me
Someone always knows
He’ll say, “Ain’t you the man who shot that boy?”
Who wanted his turn to dance
So will I die in some street that night
No never had a chance

I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
and wish you all goodnight
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand

I ended up in Fort Worth
‘Cause no one knows me here
And time has a funny way
of taken away the years
But I don’t mind the changes
Or the age that’s in my face
Because there is a piece of my soul
In every man I’ve killed
In every God forsaken place

Never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
Ain’t going to be nothing in hell
I haven’t lived through here
I’m just going to walk out
yeah tonight I’ll save your life
I never meant to be a bad man
I just had a fast hand
