Johnny Paycheck - 11 Months and 29 Days

In 1985, Paycheck was convicted and sentenced to 7 years for grazing some dude's scalp with a .22. Paycheck claimed the act was self-defense. He spent 22 months in prison before he was pardoned by the Governor for this infraction. 
That old judge put a sledgehammer in my hands when he said "I'm gonna send you to Huntsville, shave your face and your head I'm doing 11/29 boys with a cement floor for my bed Busted in Austin, walkin' around in a daze, yes I was Now, I'm sitting in this slammmer, looking out the these bars in a haze but it'll all clear up in 11 months and 29 days, yeah Lord

To me, an outlaw is a man that did things his own way, whether you liked him or not.   I did things my own way.
