Bryant's Song  Russell Lawson

[Am]The sunlight [Am/G]steals across the [F#m7aug5/D]floor
[Am]I stand and [Am/G]face the concrete [F#m7aug5/D]walls
[Am]I look be[Am/G]yond the bars where [F#m7aug5/D]other     [Am/F]men are [E]free[E4sus] [E]
[Am]I worked eight [Am/G]hours worth to[F#m7aug5/D]day
[Am]Five days I [Am/G]sweat my youth [F#m7aug5/D]away
[Am]two days I [Am/G]kill my time in [F#m7aug5/D]card games [Am/F]and T[E]V[E4sus] [E]
[Am]once a week I write a [D]friend of mine
[Am]sometimes a letter comes for [G]me
[Am]I mark the days on empty [D]envelopes
[F]mostly I [E]sleep...[Am]there [G]freedom's [F]cheap ... [G]freedom's [F]so [E]cheap
[Am]the crimes that [Am/G]sent me up were [F#m7aug5/D]small
[Am]I hardly [Am/G]noticed them at [F#m7aug5/D]all
[Am]but they [Am/G]became the tallest [F#m7aug5/D]mountains [Am/F]I must [E]cross [E4sus] [E]
[Am]the stick men [Am/G]come. the stick men [F#m7aug5/D]go
[Am]my ciga[Am/G]rettes are running [F#m7aug5/D]low
[Am]I think a[Am/G]bout the many [F#m7aug5/D]chances [Am/F]I have [E]lost[E4sus] [E]
[Am]perhaps today I'll see a [D]friend of mine
[Am]they come to visit now and [G]then
[Am]they bring me money and some [D]magazines
[F]when they are [E]gone ... I [Am]feel [G]so [F]alone ... [G]I feel [F]damn [E]alone
[Am]the bunk springs [Am/G]wheeze as I lay [F#m7aug5/D]down
[Am]the flowers [Am/G]bloom, the leaves turn [F#m7aug5/D]brown
[Am]somebody [Am/G]makes release and [F#m7aug5/D]I dream [Am/F]of pa[E]role [E4sus] [E]
[Am]the days are [Am/G]slow, the nights are [F#m7aug5/D]deep
[Am]I eat, I [Am/G]sit, I work, I [F#m7aug5/D]sleep
[Am]they have my [Am/G]body, but [F#m7aug5/D]I must [Am/F]keep my [E]soul[E4sus] [E]
[Am]once a week I write a [D]friend of mine
[Am]sometimes a letter comes for [G]me
[Am]I mark the days on empty [D]envelopes
[F]mostly I [E]sleep...[Am]there [G]freedom's [F]cheap...[G]freedom's [F]so [E]cheap
