Austin Prison

A chordA E chordE A chordA
They had a warrant out for me all over country
E chordE
And I was trying to beat two raps in Idaho
A chordA D chordD
I was breaking into a school house Sunday morning without warning
A chordA E chordE A chordA
When I saw the sheriff coming for me slow from down below

A chordA E chordE A chordA
His steel grey eyes were blazing when he saw me
E chordE
His hand was on his gun when he rode up
A chordA D chordD
He said you killed that woman I know you shot her why'd you do it
A chordA E chordE A chordA
I'm taking you to Austin and I'm gonna lock you up


A chordA E chordE A chordA
Well he tied me with the plowline the next morning
E chordE
And he had me deep in Texas the next day
A chordA D chordD
A chordA crazy screaming lynch mob waited in streets of Austin
A chordA E chordE A chordA
But he put me in the jailhouse and he threw the key away


A chordA E chordE A chordA
A chordA jury found me guilty three months later
E chordE
Weld evil men with murder in their eyes
A chordA D chordD
They even took me out and said now show us where you killed her
A chordA E chordE A chordA
And that wicked judge said now I hereby sentence you to die
E chordE
But here I am far away from Austin prison my friend the jailor handed me a file
A chordA D chordD
Now all I want between me and there are a lot of friendly people
A chordA E chordE A chordA
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
