Subject: MY INLAWS MADE AN OUTLAW OUT OF ME
From: ah827@rgfn.epcc.edu
Date: 28 Jan 97 - 01:54 AM

My inlaws made an outlaw out of me;
They filled our married life with misery;
.......fill in....
One night her pappy caught me on a spree;
You're nothin' but a drunken bum says he;
So with liquor on my breath;
I nearly beat her pa to death;
My inlaws made an outlaw out of me.

This one may have also come from a movie soundtrack, but it did get quite a lot of airplay in the 50's.... Gene

MY INLAWS MADE AN OUTLAW OUT OF ME
Singer: Unknown

One night her pappy caught me on a spree
"You're nothin' but a drunken bum!", says he
So with liquor on my breath
I nearly beat her pa to death
My inlaws made an outlaw out of me.

My inlaws made an outlaw out of me
They filled our married life with misery
..........................................................

This one may be from a movie soundtrack
But it got quite a lot of airplay in the 40's or 50's

It reads more like a country song than a folksong--have you looked for it in country music sites? --seed

What counrty music web sites do you recommend for lyrics? I'm interested in words to a song about "one drink is one too many and one thousand's not enough". I heard it on the radio, and while the sound of the song didn't appeal to me, the sentiment fits too many of my friends and acquaintances.

Hi, Felipa - http://www.roughstock.com/cowpie/ - Cowpie is the place for country lyrics. There's none better.

Thank you Joe, source of almost all knowledge. I saw that site once before and thought it was just for guitarists, but it DOES have a lyrics section. I searched and came up with a variety of other songs about alcohol, such as "Here I am Drunk Again" (Moe Bandy), "Drive me to Drink" (George Jones), Another Good Reason(not to drink)(Alan Jackson), which could be SEVEN BEERS WITH THE WRONG KIND OF MAN (Recorded by Bonnie Blue Eyes). But I didn't get the song I was looking for. Requests for other cowpatters to submit lyrics have to be done through the "Cowpie" magazine, so Cowpie isn't not half as handy a site as Mudcat.

By the way, Felipa, there are lots of fascinating songs to browse through at Cowpie. If you do a Cowpie search for Graham, you'll find our friend Gene Graham has posted hundreds of classics there. If a song was posted by Gene Graham, it's worth a look. I don't know how he finds 'em.
You can bet he won't give up until he finds this Inlaw song.

It is just ONE OF MANY old tunes running thru my
fading memory...that I would like to find...
I find several every year that I have been
looking for...SOME FOR 30/40/50 years...

LIKE FERDI-LIZA [?]

While walking down the street one day
I met a little feller
When I asked him what his name was
He began to beller

My Pappy's name was Ferdinand
My Mammy's name was Liza
And so between the two of them
They named me FERDI-LIZA

Now FERDI-LIZA had so many
Other little brothers
He said they used up all the names
While naming all the others

Memory fades along in here....

I wrote to Cowpie about publishing song requests. I received the following reply quite quickly:
Thanks for your interest in COWPIE. COWPIE is focused on guitar playing and the focus is required simply from a time standpoint. While we do accept submissions of lyric only in hopes that someone will add the chords or tab later, we don't deal with lyric requests. Lyric requests should be posted to the Usenet newsgroup rec.music.country.western. Usenet has a larger readership and most likely a quicker reply.

"My Inlaws Made an Outlaw Out* of Me" was recorded by Hank Penny on "Hollywood Western Swing 1944-1947," 1999, Krazy Kat #25.

You can play a sound clip on this page.

*Some sources omit the word "out" from the title, but "out" is clearly present in the lyrics I heard.

MY INLAWS MADE AN OUTLAW OUT OF ME
As recorded by Hank Penny

My in-laws made an outlaw out of me
They filled my married life with misery
Let me tell you a tale of woe
That no bachelor will know
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

I love my wife and I know that she loves me
At first we were as happy as could be
Then her family come along
And ever'thing I done was wrong
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

Now her cousin was a mean and ornery cuss
And he always did his best to start a fuss
Said he wished that I would die
So I just punched him in the eye
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

My in-laws made an outlaw out of me
Her brother did me dirt 'n' then laughed with glee
Since I whipped his ugly hide
I can face my wife with pride
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

One night her pappy caught me on a spree
You're nothin' but a drunken bum, said he
So with liquor on my breath
I nearly beat her pa to death
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

My in-laws made an outlaw out of me
They couldn't take a hint and leave us be
Now the sheriff has my pi'ture
Nailed on almost ever' tree
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me

My in-laws made an outlaw out of me
Our peaceful life soon changed to agony
And I'm a-tellin' you by heck
I'm gonna break somebody's neck
'Cause my in-laws made an outlaw out of me

The chords, so far as I can figure them out, are the same all the way through:

[C]My in-laws made an outlaw [F]out of me
They [F]filled my married life with [C]misery
Let me [F]tell you a tale of woe
That [Bb]no bachelor will know
[C]My in-laws made an outlaw [F]out of me.

Here’s an altogether different song with almost the same title. The tune sounds very much like “Wreck of the Old 97” except that they’ve added a chorus. I found this on Spotify:


MY IN-LAWS MADE AN OUTLAW OUT OF ME
As recorded by Fly Amero on “Cracked Country Christmas” (2010)

1. Well, I was sleepin’ when my wife received a phone call from her mother
In New Jersey on December twenty-two.
She said: “We’re packin’ up the Lexus and we’re headin’ down to Texas
For to spend a jolly holiday with you.”
Now I don’t mean no disrespect, but when it comes to deep affec-
tion for these people, I’m as shallow as can be.
The woman always brings her dog; the old man gargles like a frog,
And they both point out my ev’ry flaw with dignity.

CHORUS: Here comes her mother; here comes her father.
There goes my peace on earth and sanity.
They’ve come to share another Christmas in my house and food and bus’ness.
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me.

2. Right from the moment they arrived they both were skinnin’ me alive,
And all the time that yappy dog was at my sleeve,
But my frustrations never showed until they started to unload
A million Christmas gifts for ev’ryone but me.
Now at this point I’d like to make it clear that skippin’ school’s about as near
As I’ve come to the wrong side of the law,
But that all ended when my shotgun blast ricocheted off Mammy’s ass
And picked them false teeth clean from Pappy’s jaw. CHORUS

LAST CHORUS: Here comes a cruiser; I’ll be the loser,
But at least I’ll have a toilet all to me.
When they all get their gifts from Santy Claus, I’ll be locked up in jail because
My in-laws made an outlaw out of me.
Yeah, my in-laws made an outlaw out of me.
Whoa, my in-laws made an outlaw out of me.
