Joanna Recorded by Vernon Oxford Recorded by Jack Lee Liston
C G7 The clock on the night stand said quarter past two F G7 My God my Joanna what’s happened to you C G7 In trembling silence she starred at the wall F G7 C When she finally spoke it made no sense at all
F C As I piece together the story she told G7 C It all became clearer it began to unfold F C To see her in prison I can’t stand the pain G7 F C So I made the decision that I’d take the blame
G7 Now the jury said guilty and that now I must pay F G7 And the judge that passed sentence said life and a day C G7 Oh life and a day that’s forever to spend F G7 C For loving Joanna I’m guilty as sin
F C The cell that I’m in measures 4 by 8 feet G7 C The floor walls and ceiling are made of concrete F C Joanna’s last letter I read everyday G7 F C It’s been over two years now that she passed away
G7 F C And I’m still here in prison with life and a day
