    Lyrics

    The warden said he'd mail my letter
    The chaplain's waitin' by the door
    Tonight we'll cross the yard together
    Then they can't hurt me anymore.

    I am going over yonder
    Where no ghost can follow me
    There's another place beyond here
    Where I'll be free I believe.

    Give my radio to Johnson
    Thibodeaux can have my fan
    Send my Bible home to Mama
    Call her every now and then.

    I suppose I got it comin'
    I can't ever pay enough
    All my rippin' and a runnin'
    I hurt everyone I loved.

    The world'll turn around without me
    The sun'll come up in the east
    Shinin' down on all of them that hate me
    I hope my goin' brings 'em peace.
