Harvey Logan-Dock Boggs
Dock, banjo in gCGBD tuning and vocal, Mike Seeger, guitar in C position, standard tuning

People don't know, 'ceptin' I tell you so
Down on the Bowery where the rounders they all go
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

Gamblin' for money, the money wouldn't come right
They fooled around, got into a fight
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

SOLO

About that time, the cops passed along
They stopped in the game, knew something's going on wrong
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

They went in, intention to make arrest
Knew Harvey was an outlaw, from 'way out West
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

SOLO

Over his head, billies they did break
Harvey gave them contents of a smokeless .38
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

Catching Harvey Logan, they put him in Knoxville Jail
Just because he was a stranger, no one would go his bail
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

SOLO

Harvey was in jail, that guard wasn't very far
Threw a lasso over the jailer and pulled him to the bar
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

Harvey said to the jailer, "You know you done me wrong.
Hush up your cryin' and put the saddles on"
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe

SOLO

Crossed the bridge at midnight, the clock was striking twelve
There stood his old Captain, a-fixin' to give him awful
REFRAIN: Oh my babe, woman babe
