**************** NOTORIOUS *****************
Written and performed by Confederate Railroad.

Capo on the 1st fret.

Verse 1:
         E
	Riding North on Interstate 75
	
	With a nervous fading beauty sitting by his side
          A                            E
	And a pistol that he used to pave the way
                                            B7 
	Down the long black stretches of a dark highway


Verse 2:
         E  
	Ray bought his future with a pound of lead
	
	When he robbed a liquor store and left the clerk for dead
          A                                 E 
	That kid should have put the money in the sack
                                              B7 
	But he didn't and now there ain't no turning back


Chorus 1:
                A                     E  
	He's a desperate rider, he's a Jesse James
             A                                E
	The best that he could hope for is a household name
               A                   E
	There ain't nobody that a man can trust
                B7                    E 
	When all his headlines read, notorious
               A                   E
        There ain't nobody that a man can trust
                B7                    E    
	When all his headlines read, notorious


Verse 3:
          E 
	They pulled out of ? about12 o'clock 

	Took the heatstroke with the lights off to avoid the road block
         A                              E                                
	Ray killed the motor at the county line
                                           B7  
	Changed his Tennessee plates to a lost tag sign


Verse 4:
         E          
	She would never ask what the boy had done

	But said she'd be his hostage if he needed one
         A                           E  
	Her momma raised her to be loyal and true
                                              B7   
	And she figured that's the least that she could do


Chorus 2:
                 A                  E  
        She was lost and lonely on a midnight ride
           A                    E 
        Reluctant Bonnie to a poorman's Clyde
            A                       E
	It ain't too easy when the man you love
              B7                     E 
	Has got a reputation that's notorious
            A                       E 
        It ain't too easy when the man you love
              B7                     E  
	Has got a reputation that's notorious


Verse 5:
          E
	They were just outside of Knoxville when the lights flashed on

	And the siren's starting howling like hell houndogs
         A                            E  
	Ray popped that Firebird into overdrive
                                      B7
	And swore he'd never let them take him alive


Chorus 3:
                  A                     E 
        He was a desperate rider, he was Jesse James
             A                                  E
	The best that he'd ever hope for was a household name
              A                    E 
	The morning papers didn't say too much
               B7                E
	But his obituairy read, notorious
             A                             E
        The caption by his picture didn't say too much
               B7                E    
	But his obituairy read, notorious
             A                             E
        The caption by his picture didn't say too much
               B7                E
	But his obituairy read, notorious
