                 LIFE TO GO
            by Stonewall Jackson
I've got a sad dad story friends that I don't like to tell
I had a wife and family,when they locked me in a cell
I've been in here eighteen years,that's a long long time I know 
But time don't mean a thing to me,cause I've got life to go

Well I went one night where the lights were bright
Just to see what I could see
I met up with an old friend who just thought the world of me
Well he bought me drinks and he took me to every honky tonk in town
Words were said,now he's dead,I just had to bring him down

Well it's been a long long time now, since I've heard from my wife
I know I'd be there with her yet if I hadn't used a knife
Well I bet that little girl of mine don't realize or know
Her daddie's been here eighteen years and still got life to go

I bet there's not one man outside who has spent this long in jail
I'll be here in this prison,till my body's just a shell
I can't be free to go and see the one that I love so
