by

Grateful Dead


[Chorus]
I was born in a desert, I was raised in a lion's den
I was born in a desert, I was raised in a lion's den
Well, my number one occupation
Is stealing women from other men

[Verse 1]
Said I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good
I'm a wanted man in Texas, busted jail and I'm gone for good
Well, the sheriff couldn't catch me
But his little girl sure wished she would
You know she wished she would

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 2]
The doctor call me crazy, some says I am, some says I ain't
Say the doctor call me crazy, some says I am, some says I ain't
Thеy say the preacher man call mе a sinner, but his little girl call me a saint

[Verse 3]
Well, a couple shots of whiskey women 'round here start looking good
A couple shots of whiskey women, these Frisco girls start looking good
A couple more shots of whiskey, I'm going down to Minglewood

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 4]
"T" for Texas, yes, and it's a "T" for Timbuktu
Yeah, it's a "T" for Texas, yes, and it's a "T" for Timbuktu
Yes, and it's a "T" for San Francisco
Where the little girls know what to do

[Chorus]
I was born in a desert, I was raised in a lion's den
I was born in a desert, I was raised in a lion's den
Well, my number one occupation
Is stealing womens from their other men

[Outro]
Do it again
Said my number one occupation
Is stealing womens from other men
