Ninety Nine Years Is Almost Life
Recorded by Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs
Written by Louise Cirtain and Gladys Stacey

G D7
The courtroom was crowded the judge waited there
G
My mother was crying when I left my chair
G7 C
The sentence were sharp for it cut like a knife
D7 G
For ninety nine years folks is almost for life

D7
I dreamed of the whistle I heard the bells ring
G
My sweetheart was coming some good news to bring
G7 C
I knew that she loved me and that she'd be true
D7 G
She said she would save me I'm guilty as you

D7
She went for a pardon or else for parole
G
I know she'll come back for she's part of my soul
G7 C
If she ever fails me I'll be mighty blue
D7 G
I'll stay in this jailhouse I'll die in here too

D7
They said I was a criminal and to my despair
G
They sent me to Nashville and shaved off my hair
G7 C
So come hear my story I'll tell you my fate
D7 G
I'm serving in Nashville for another man's hate

D7
I just got a letter from Nashville town
G
And after I read it my spirit broke down
G7 C
It's sad that my sweetheart and the judge would be wed
D7 G
And here in this jailhouse I wish I was dead

D7
No matter how right folks a man he may be
G
Bad company will send him to prison like me
G7 C
So take a good woman and make her your wife
D7 G
For ninety nine years folks is almost for life
