Nebraska Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I saw her standin' on her front lawn just twirlin' her baton
Me and her went for a ride sir and ten innocent people died
Verse 2
From the town of Lincoln Nebraska with a sawed-off .410 on my lap
Through to the badlands of Wyoming I killed everything in my path
Verse 3
I can't say that I'm sorry for the things that we done
At least for a little while sir, me and her we had us some fun
Verse 4
Now the jury brought in a guilty verdict and the judge he sentenced me to death
Midnight in a prison storeroom with leather straps across my chest
Verse 5
Sheriff when the man pulls that switch sir and snaps my poor neck back
You make sure my pretty baby is sittin' right there on my lap
Verse 6
They declared me unfit to live, said into that great void my soul'd be hurled
They wanted to know why I did what I did
Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world
