This is one of the best written songs I've ever heard. It's on
Springsteen's album Nebraska where he does it in a different key, but
slap a capo on and that's easily changable. He also throws a few gut
wrenching harmonica solos in. Happy pickin'!

Nebraska-Bruce Springsteen

I saw her standin№ on her front lawn
Just twirlin№ her baton
Me and her went for a ride sir
And ten innocent people died

From the town of Lincoln Nebraska
With a sawed of .410 on my lap
Through to the badlands of Wyoming
I killed everything in my path

I can№t say that I№m sorry
For the things that we done
At least for a little while sir
Me and her we
Had us some fun

The jury brought in
A guilty verdict and the
Judge he sentenced me to death
Midnight in a prison storeroom with
Leather straps across my chest

Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir
And snaps my poor head back
You make sure my pretty baby Is sittin№ right there
On my lap

They declared me unfit to live
Said into that great void my soul№d be hurled
They wanted to know why I did what I did
Well sir I guess there№s just a meanness in this world
