Heist/ crime songs

Just listened to Charlie Robisons “desperate times” great heist gone wrong song , right up there with “the road goes on forever “ I can’t really think of any popular or rock for that matter crime tunes. They’re all Americana or country .?


"Raised on Robbery," by Joni Mitchell (if we're including the world's "oldest profession")

"Hey Joe," by any of many


"Lincoln Park Pirates" by Steve Goodman. Funny drinking song

"Long Black Veil" by the Chieftains with Mick Jagger. You can feel the chill.

"Pancho and Lefty" by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Check out the YouTube video with a cameo of Townes Van Zandt.

"Down Into Mexico" by Delbert McClinton with a special nod for the set-up/follow-up song "One of the Fortunate Few". Ah hell, pretty much his entire catalog is outlaw or pretty close to it.
