Stone Walls  Jim Croce

             Sp[D]ent too many ye[A]ars inside this pri[D]sion
             T[G]oo many years just f[D]or one little fi[A]ght
             [D]He got what was c[D7]omin and I t[G]hink I've served enough t[G7]ime
             I[D]'m goin h[A]ome to[G/D]night
             T[D]hat stone looks mighty c[A]old
             And the g[Bm]uard that walks that w[D7]alk
             Is just wa[G]itin to get a con[D]vict in his si[A]ghts
             But if [D]I can clear the [D7]top you can b[G]et I'll never s[G7]top
             Ca[D]use I'm goin h[A]ome ton[G/D]ight
Chorus:   Because st[G]one walls do a pr[G7]ision make and i[D]ron bars a c[D7]age
          A[D]ny man that says they do[Bm]n'ts never been in[A]side
          Cause in t[D]ime the bars get cl[D7]oser and at ni[G]ght the walls grow   [G7]
          Till you f[D]eel like there's a sh[A]ackle around your [G/D]mind

              N[D]ow those guards are on my t[D7]ail, I can h[G]ear those sire[D7]ns wail
              But I k[G]now that I'll get a[D]way and that I'll be alr[A]ight
              Cause I'd ra[D]ther live on the r[D7]un, stand f[G]ree in the mornin s[G7]un
              Than to sp[D]end an[A7]other lo[A]nely prision n[G/D]ight
