  1. The Briley Boys

From the recording LIVE in a Field of Bluegrass


Chorus:They were the Briley Boys... 'n their name still rings todayThey were the Briley Boys.. 'n for the dead men, they must pay
They lit out from Mecklenburg... one sunny morn in June'n they run like Hell, 'cause they knew too well.. the dogs would chase 'em soonJames, he was an evil man.. Linwood, just as bad.. the simple souls of eleven menhad paid with all they had... yeah...
They were born in Richmond town.. a city of the South'n had but little to themselves...'n lived from hand-to-mouthscarcely did their Mother know... her son's had turn to crimebut, when the die was finally cast... its face read 'Killing Time'....
They were found in Philly Town... hiding in a shack...'n they had sworn that no law man.. would ever bring them back..But, when the dust had finally cleared.. those brothers laid in chainsThe Law (Lord) will ride in judgment.. 'n they will never kill again...©2000 Bob Perilla- Pigtown Publishing (BMI)
