Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Boy Floyd (not Guthrie)
Subject: Pretty Boy Floyd: lyrics
We have a library patron seeking lyrics to an old song.....Pretty Boy Floyd....not the Woody Guthrie version, however......does this ring any bells? Some sketchy lyrics.... Now boys, a vest of steel I'm wearing, made out of little steel wires. To keep all those bullets away from my heart, because my heart is precious to me. I have a sweet wife and a baby, who is waiting for me back home. I want to go back to see them, but the cops won't leave me alone.

Any help will be great!!! Burnley Library Cottonwood Falls, KS
