BALLAD OF BELLE STARR (Bobby Barnett / James Hunter / Margaret Ann) Bobby Barnett - 1974 Belle Shirley lived near Wilburton, wore a hat and shawl Her name was well respected until she turned outlaw Belle Shirley married Sam Starr who rode the owlhoot trail She joined up and soon became as rough as any male She picked up men's bad habits and was handy with a gun She robbed and she plundered and she thought it was great fun Belle Starr, Belle Starr, with a bullet in your back Are you lyin' there wishin' that you'd never joined that pack Dyin' is not easy on some forgotten trail She wanted to be famous and she did not fail Some claim Belle was wicked, while others called her brave When she staged a holdup and hid out in Robbers Cave Belle Starr became a legend, yes, that's a well known fact But she ended up an outlaw with a bullet in her back Belle Starr, Belle Starr, with a bullet in your back Are you lyin' there wishin' that you'd never joined that pack (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2012)
