San Quentin  Johnny Cash

San [A]Quentin, you'v[D]e been livin' hell [A]to me
You'[A]ve hosted me since [D]nineteen sixty [A]three
I've[D] seen 'em come and go [A]and I've seen them die
[E]And long ago I stopped askin[A]' why
[A]  [G]   [A]   [D]                             
San [A]Quentin, I hat[D]e every inch of you[A].
You'[A]ve cut me and have [D]scarred me thru[A] an' thru.
And [D]I'll walk out a wiser [A]weaker man;
[E]Mister Congressman why can't you [A]understand.
[A]  [G]   [A]   [D]                             
San [A]Quentin, what [D]good do you think y[A]ou do?
Do y[A]ou think I'll be di[D]fferent when yo[A]u're through?
You [D]bent my heart and mind[A] and you rob my soul,
[E]And your stone walls turn my blood a little [A]cold.
[A]  [G]   [A]   [D]                             
San [A]Quentin, may y[D]ou rot and burn in [A]hell.
May [A]your walls fall and[D] may I live to [A]tell.
May [D]all the world forget y[A]ou ever stood.
[E]And may all the world regret[A] you did no good.
[G]San Quentin, you've been[A] livin' hell t[D]o me.
