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
