    Just'a good ol' boys
    Never meanin' no harm.
    Beats all you never saw
    Been in trouble with the law
    Since the day they was born

    Staightnin' the curves
    Flatnin the hills
    Someday the mountain might get 'em But the law never will

    Makin' their way The only way they know how That's just a little bit more Than the law will allow.
