Verse 1

G5I will tell you of a bandit in a great midwestern state Who never learned his lesson until it was too late This man was bold and careless and the leader of his gang His boldness did not save him when the law said, "You must hang" When the law said, “You must hang” When the law said, “You must hang” His boldness did not save him When the law said, “You must hang”

Verse 2

This bandit's name was Birger he lived at Shady Rest The people learned to fear him throughout the middle west It was out in old West City Joe Adams was shot down Then the cry of justice said, "The murderers must be found" "The murderers must be found" "The murderers must be found" The cry of justice said "The murderers must be found"

Verse 3

Dan Thomasson was arrested, he turned state's evidence Charlie Birger was found guilty for he had no defense He asked for a re-hearing but this he was denied Out in the county jailhouse to take his life he tried To take his life he tried To take his life he tried Out in the county jailhouse To take his life he tried

Verse 4

On the nineteenth day of April in nineteen twenty-eight Way out west in Benton Charlie Birger met his fate Another life has ended; another chapter done Another man has gambled in the game that can't be won In the game that can't be won In the game that can't be won Another man has gambled In the game that can't be won
