25 Minutes To Go
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Shel Silverstein

Well they're building a gallows outside my cell
I've got 25 minutes to go

And the whole town's waiting just to hear me yell
I got 24 minutes to go

Well they gave me some beans for my last meal
I got 23 minutes to go

But nobody ask me how I feel
I got 22 minutes to go

Well I sent for the governor and the whole darn bunch
With 21 minutes to go

And I called up the mayor but he's out to lunch
I got 20 more minutes to go

Then the sheriff said boy I'm gonna watch you die
With 19 minutes to go

So I laughed in his face and I spit in his eye
With 18 minutes to go

Now here comes the preacher for to save my soul
With 13 minutes to go

And he's talking bout burning but I'm so cold
And I got 12 more minutes to go

Now they're testing the trap and it chills my spine
With 11 more minutes to go

And the trap and the rope oh they work just fine
Got 10 more minutes to go

Well I'm waiting for the pardon that'll set me free
With 9 more minutes to go

But this ain't the movies so forget about me
Got 8 more minutes to go

With my feet on the trap and my head in the noose
5 more minutes to go

Won't somebody come and cut me loose
Got 4 more minutes to go

I can see the mountains I can see the sky
3 more minutes to go

And it's too darn pretty for a man to wanna die
I got 2 more minutes to go

I can see the buzzards I can hear the crows
1 more minute to go

And now I'm swinging

And here I go-o-o-o
