I Fought the Law

Saturday, March 24, 2012

When I started outof the house last evening to walk the pups, I saw a man hanging around my elderly neighbor's back patio door. She hires folks to do her yard work, so I wasn't worried - until a guy drove up in a big Suburban SUV and shouted "He's a prowler - he's been trying to break into houses!" The dude did a double-take, and ran off into her backyard and over the 8 foot back fence. I called the non-emergency number for the cops, and reported it. While I was on the phone, I heard some rattling at my front gate - he had come around the other side of my house and was going out the gate. I screamed "Get out of my yard!" repeatedly - probably into the ear of the police operator. They sent at least 3 police cars and a chopper out! All the neighbors were out, exchanging stories of where he had run last. The boy & girls in blue did themselves proud . Didn't catch him, but not for lack of trying. I was so hyped up, I dragged my mini-pack around the 1.5 mile walk in 30 minutes - instead of our usual 40.

Written by Sonny Curtis of the Crickets in 1958 with the most famous cover by the Bobby Fuller Four in 1966.

Breakin' rocks in the ... hot sun
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I needed money, 'cause I ... had none
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won


I left my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
Well, she's the best girl ... I've ever had
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won



(Instrumental Break)

Robbin' people with a . . . SIX gun
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won


I miss my baby and the ... good fun
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won



I left my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
But, she's the best girl ... I've ever had
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
I Fought the Law and the ... law won
