Bill Payne had a twenty dollar bill
For that twenty dollar bill he had to kill
Down the road he's setting his sights
Kissed his ma goodbye as she said goodnight
Bill Payne's headed for the sweet bye and bye
Bill Payne's momma gonna cry, cry, cry

Wash Turner just along for the ride
Carolina breeze passing bye
Never meant to do any harm
Just a wild country boy from the farm
Wash Turner headed for the sweet bye and bye
Gas chamber gas gonna rise, rise, rise

George Penn killed by Bill Payne's gun
Bill Payne and Wash on the run
When they broke the news to
George Penn's wife
She kissed her child goodbye as she said goodnight

Momma's headed for the sweet bye and bye
Momma's little baby gonna cry, cry, cry
Momma's headed for the sweet bye and bye
Momma's little baby gonna cry, cry, cry
