Stripes On My Back

	  		D  A  D 
D  A  D 
 
          D 
Well them 4 walls of Raiford are closing in on me 
     A                             D 
Doin 3-5 hard labor for armed robbery 
       D 
I have 2 years behind me, I could not wait the time 
      A                                               D 
Every time I thought about it well I died some more inside 
          D 
And I had stripes on my back and memories that hurt 
    A                                           D 
The only time I seen sunshine is when I went to work 
        D  
Diggin' ditches for the chain gang, sleepin' the hole 
   A                                                 D 
Oh Lord please forgive me for I could not wait for parole 

tabchorus
G D And I'm comin home to see Jesus, I feel so close this time A D Please take mercy on a soldier from the Florida/Georgia line G D When they find me they must kill me, Lord Jesus, save my soul A D I can't go back down to Raiford, I can't take that anymore
tab
Well these last few years behind me, Oh Lord have been so sad I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad But now they say I'm guilty and when they find me I must die Only me and Jesus know I never stole a dime Well when Vietnam was over there was no work here for me I had a pretty wife a-waitin' and 2 kids I had to feed Well I'm one of America's heroes and when they shoot me down Won't you fly Old Glory proudly, put my medals in the ground Chorus
