Ninety Nine Years
Written and recorded by Bill Anderson

G D7
My mama always told me better than to play with a loaded gun
G
If I'da just listened to her she'da never had a prisoner for a son
C G
The picture's still in front of my eyes the echo in my ears
D7 G
When the jury said he's guilty and the judge said ninety-nine years

D7
Oh for ninety-nine years I'll watch the sun rise over that same old sea
G
Ninety-nine years nothing but an empty cell for company

Yet there's not very much that stands between me
C G
And the freedom I hold dear
D7
Just a thousand bars a big brick wall
G
And a sentence of ninety-nine years

D7
I kissed my darling on her tender lips and they took me by the hand

I had a nice little ride on a ferry boat
G
To the rock where the prison stands
C G
The warden said as he locked the door I hope you'll like it here
D7 G
Just make yourself at home you're gonna be with us ninety-nine years

D7
I've almost forgotten what my real name is been a number for so long

Making little bitty rocks out of great big rocks
G
Gets old as the days wear on
C G
But I'll do my best for ninety-nine years just try to stay alive
D7 G
Cause the Governor said if I'd be good I'd get out in ninety-five
