VERSE 1:
[G]My brother went to prison
D G*
He's in Kingston doin' time
He got [G]seven years for sellin'
C G*
What I've been smokin' all my life
[G]Time off for good behavior
But the [D]boy don't [C]feel too [Em]good
[C]Locked behind those steel bars
I don't know if he [D]should

Yeah a [G]few years ago they called me
Back [D]home to get a big [G]award
They [G]also called my brother
C G*
But they made him say My Lord
They [G]locked me up in a Hall of Fame
And [D]threw a[C]way the [Em]keys
But [C]when they put my brother away
It really did somethin' to [D]me

CHORUS:
Now I'm [D]guilty as hell for sayin'
[C]Boy you better go back [G]home
[D]You know you'll get a fair shake there
We're [C]running all [G]alone
When he [Em]called me up from the [G]border
With the [D]Mounties [C]on his [Em]tail
I [C]said go back to Canada
We can raise the [D]bail

[G]Now I get these letters
From a [D]cell with no T[G]V
He [G]says he's outside one hour
And [C]inside twenty [G]three
Time [G]off for good behavior
But the [D]boy don't [C]feel too [Em]good
[C]Locked behind those steel bars
I don't know if he [D]should
