 D                  G
  My name is Billy Austin 
 A                          D
  And I'm twenty-nine years old 
         G           D
  I was born in oklahoma 
           Bm             Bm  A  G
  Quarter Cherokee I'm told 
                      D
  Don't remember Oklahoma 
          G                  A 
  Been so long since I left home 
                  G               Bm
  Seems like I've always been in prison 
            G             Bm   A  D
  like I've always been alone 
 
Didn't mean to hurt nobody 
Never thought I'd cross that line 
I held up a filling station 
Like I'd done a hundred times 
The kid done like I told him 
He lay face down on the floor 
guess I'll never know what made me 
Turn and walk back through that door 
 
The shot rang out like thunder 
My ears rang like a bell 
No one came runnin' 
So I called the cops myself 
Took their time to get there 
and I guess I could've run 
I knew I should be feeling something 
But I never shed a tear once 
 
 D                      G
I didn't even make the papers 
        A                D
Cause I only killed one man 
         G              D
but my trial was over quickly 
             Bm               Bm  A  G
And then the long hard wait began 
                 D
Court appointed lawyer 
 G                       A 
Couldn't look me in the eye 
              G                  Bm
He just stood up and closed his briefcase 
           G              Bm  A  D
When they sentenced me to die 
 
Now my waitin's over 
As the final hour drags by 
I ain't about to tell you 
That I don't deserve to die 
But there's twenty-seven men here 
Mostly black, brown and poor 
Most of 'em are guilty 
Who are you to say for sure? 
  
So when the preacher comes to get me 
And they shave off all my hair 
Could you take that long walk with me 
knowing hell is waiting there? 
Could you pull that switch yourself sir 
with a sure and steady hand? 
Could you still tell yourself 
That you're better than I am?
