This Side of the Law Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '70 Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP

On this side of the law on that side of the law
Who is right who is wrong who is weak who is strong
Who is for and who's against the law

You see I didn't really mean any harm
But I simply couldn't make it on the farm
When the land won't give a lot you gotta do with what you got
And all I got's the muscle in my arm
Well I wouldn't ever hurt my fellow man
And Mister seems to me you'd understand
I'm just tryin' to help myself without hurtin' somebody else
And a man has got to do the best he can

On this side of the law...
[ ac.guitar ]
Oh I didn't really mean to let my family down
And I'm not giving you the run around
I had rather be dead than to have to beg my daily bread
And to pay my way no matter where I'm bound
Well I didn't really think that I did wrong
Just long as I stayed here where I belong
I did the only thing I could same as anybody would
Yes I was simply tryin' to get along

On this side of the law...
