Wherever you may look tonight, you may see this wanted man.

Wanted man by Lucy Watson, wanted man by Jeannie Brown
Wanted man by Nellie Johnson, wanted man in this next town
But i've had all that i've wanted of a lot of things i've had
And a lot more that i needed of some things that turned out bad.

Wanted man in Sacramento, wanted man in Tennessee
Wanted man in Oklahoma, wanted man in (mumble) history
Wanted man in Indiana, wanted man in old Cheyenne
Wherever you might look tonight, you may see this wanted man.

Well i went to sleep in Shreveport an' woke up in Abilene
Wonderin' why the hell i'm wanted at some place halfway between
So i went oh to El Paso, stopped to get myself a map
Went the wrong way into Juarez with Juanita on my lap.

  Johnny Cash - 10.sep.1970, studio version  

Johnny Cash: Last week in Nashville, Bob Dylan -- one of the top writers
I don't have to tell you who Bob Dylan is -- the greatest writer of our time was at our house.
He and i sat down and wrote a song together, and i sit in front of you doin' a 10$ singin' for you.
Yes, here it is, it's called ''Wanted Man''.

Wanted man in California, wanted man in Buffalo
Wanted man in Kansas City, wanted man in Ohio
Wanted man in Mississippi, wanted man in old Cheyenne
Wherever you might look tonight you might see this wanted man.

I might be in Colorado or Georgia by the sea
Workin' for some man who may not know at all who I might be
If you ever see me comin' an' if you know who I am
Don't you breathe it to nobody 'cause you know I'm on the lam.

Wanted man by Lucy Watson, wanted man by Jeannie Brown
Wanted man by Nellie Johnson, wanted man in this Tex town
I've had all that I wanted of a lot of things I had
An' a lot more than I needed of some things that turned out bad.

I got sidetracked in El Paso, stopped to get myself a map
Went the wrong way into Juarez with Juanita on my lap
Then I went to sleep in Shreveport, woke up in Abilene
Wonderin' why the hell I'm wanted at some town halfway in between.

Wanted man in Albuquerque, wanted man in Syracuse
Wanted man in Tallahassee, wanted man in Baton Rouge
There's somebody set to grab me anywhere that I might be
And wherever you might look tonight you might get a glimpse of me

Wanted man in California, wanted man in Buffalo
Wanted man in Kansas City, wanted man in Ohio
Wanted man in Mississippi, wanted man in old Cheyenne
Wherever you might look tonight you might see this wanted man.  up
