Sittin' alone in my cold prison cell
Watchin the sinkin' sun
My trial on earth is over now
But my main trial is yet to come

My main trial is yet to come oh Lord
I'll die in the morning at dawn
But after I die in the electric chair
My main trial is yet to come

Oh mother I'm leavin' you here all alone
I've disgraced your name I know
This trial on earth is for my life
But the main trial will be for my soul

The judge gave me the electric chair
But that don't worry me
It's what the verdict will be on that day
When the main judge's face I see
