Nanci Griffith — I Fought The Law lyrics

By Nanci Griffith
Chorus:
Oh I wish it would rain and wash my face clean
I want to find some dark cloud to hide in here
Oh love and a memory sparkle like diamonds
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
When the diamonds fall they burn like tears
Once I had a love from the Georgia Pans who only cared for me
I want to find that love of 22 here at 33
I've got a heart on my right and one on my left
And neither suits my needs
No the one I love is way out west and he never will need me
I'm gonna pack up my two-step shoes and head for the Gulf Coast plains
I want to walk the streets of my own home town where everybody knows my name
I want to ride a ways down to Galveston when the hurricanes blow in
Cause that Gulf Coast water tastes as sweet as wine
When your heart's rolling home in the wind
