    Lyrics

    I left my home town
    Turned a good woman down
    Even laughed at my own Mother's plea
    I pushed her aside
    Even laughed when she cried
    Now I'm here in this penitentary

    Now Mother knows best
    Her love has stood the test
    The records will prove it, you see
    But youth's full of fire
    Challenge and desire
    Now I'm here in this penitentary

    I fell in you see with bad company
    And I started in gamblin' for fun
    One night when the cards
    Had been dealt and I'd lost
    I backed up my play with a gun

    Now Mother knows best
    Her love has stood the test
    The records will prove it, you see
    I shot and I killed
    For a twenty dollar bill
    Now I'm here in this penitentary
