Guy Mitchell – Ninety Nine Years (Dead Or Alive) lyrics
Now today I'm thinkin bout the ninth of June
I found my friend and my baby at the Golden Spoon
He jumped off the stool and come at me with a knife
Said We both can't have her, so fight for your life

Ninety nine years in the penitentiary
Ninety nine years, baby, baby, wait for me
Ninety nine years, around twenty fifty five
Well get together dead or alive

Now today I'm thinkin bout that courtroom trial
I was so sad, baby, saw you weepin like a child
Ah, the jury found me guilty, wouldn't listen to my plea
And the judge said Mercy threw the book at me

Ninety nine years in the penitentiary
Ninety nine years, baby, baby, wait for me
Around twenty fifty five
Well get together dead or alive

Now today I'm thinkin
Bout my old friend Turk
Must be laughin with the angels
Loafin while I work
Ah, they beat me when I don't
And they beat me when I do
Hey, but I can take it, baby, for you

Ninety nine years in the penitentiary
Baby, baby, wait for me
Around twenty fifty five
Well get together dead or alive
