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
