[A]I'm in a women's prison
With [D]bars all a[A]round
I [E]caught my darlin' cheatin'
That's [D]when I shot him [A]down
I caught him in a honky-tonk
With a [D]girl I used to [A]know
The [E]door to my cell is open wide
D A Asus4 A /g A Asus4 A
And a voice cries out, "Oh, no!"

VERSE 2:
The [A]judge says I'm guilty
My [D]sentence is to [A]die
I [E]know I've been forgiven
But the [D]price of love is [A]high

CHORUS:
There's a [D]crowd outside screamin',
"Let that murderer [A]die"
But a[D]bove all their voices
I can hear my mama [E]cry

VERSE 3:
I'm [A]sittin' here on death row
And, [D]Lord, I've lost my [A]mind
For [E]love I've killed my darlin'
D A Asus4 A /g A Asus4 A
And for love I'll lose my life

VERSE 4:
I can [Bb]hear the warden coming
From the [Eb]clinging of his [Bb]keys
But [F]when they come to get me
They'll have to [Eb]drag me off my [Bb]knees

The door to my cell swings open
It's [Eb]time for me to [Bb]go
The [F]priest is readin' my last rights
He says, "[Eb]Dyin's part of livin', you [Bb]know"

CHORUS:
There's a [Eb]crowd outside screamin',
"Let that murderer [Bb]fry"
But a[Eb]bove all their voices
You can hear my mama [F]cry   [Bb]

VERSE 5:
[Bb]Now they've strapped me in the chair
And [Eb]covered up my eyes
And the [F]last voice I hear on Earth
Is my mama's [Bb]cry

"Amazing Grace how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now am found

Was blind, but now I see"
