After the death of Buddy Holly, a guy named Sonny Curtis joined The Crickets and he brought along a song he wrote called I Fought The Law. The song was a B-side song to a single called A Sweet Love. Neither song got any airplay in 1959. Years later in 1966 The Bobby Fuller Four band recorded the song and had a national hit. So Buddy Holly never actually sang this song.

I Fought The Law Lyrics 

I’m breaking rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad - I guess my race is run
Well she's the best girl that I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I’m robbing people with a zip gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I needed money cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I left my baby and I feel so bad - I guess my race is run
Well she's the best girl that I've ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
Yeah I fought the law and the law won
Yeah I fought the law and the law won
