I'm a long long way from where I want to be in the Arizona Prison they've got me
And until they set me free oh oh me it's a long long way from here to Tennessee
Oh my mouth is dry with dust my throat is raw
How I miss those big green trees in Arkansas
On the way to where I'll be when they set me free
But it's a long long way from here to Tennessee
A long long way from me to the girl that I love so
Will she wait for me oh Lord I don't know
I know that I've done wrong but friends I've paid the price
Back in Tennessee I left sweet paradise
But until they set me free oh oh me it's a long long way from here to Tennessee
It's a long long way from here to Tennessee
It's a long long way from here to Tennessee
