Shackled only by peat moss,
Then well they make change.

Stacked only by freedom,
You wear no man's chain.

They call you the Bandit
And I caught one tame
Shackles only by Piedmont
And the weatherman's chains.

They call you The Bandit
An outlaw untamed
Shackled only by freedom
You wear no man's chain.
