Austin Prison

Johnny Cash

 AEA
 They had a warrant out for me all over country
 E
and I was trying to beat two raps in Idaho,
 AD
I was breaking into a school house sunday morning without warning
 AEA
 when I saw the sheriff coming for me slow from down below
 AEA
                                    His steel grey eyes were blazing when he saw me
 E
his hand was on his gun when he rode up
 AD
he said you killed that woman I know you shot her why'd you do it?
 AEA
 I'm taking you to Austin and I'm gonna lock you up
 AEA
                                    Well he tied me with the plowline the next morning
 E
and he had me deep in Texas the next day
 AD
 A crazy screaming lynchmob waited in streets of Austin
 AEA
 but he put me in the jailhouse and he threw the key away
 AEA
                                    a jury found me guilty three months later
 E
weld evil men with murder in their eyes
 AD
 they even took me out and said now show us where you killed her
 AEA
 and that wicked judge said now I hereby sentence you to die
 E
But here I am far away from Austin prison my friend the jailor handed me a file
 AD
 now all I want between me and there are alot of friendly people
 AEA
 and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
