Prisoners Song recorded by Sonny James written by Guy Massey G
C Now if I had wings like an angel
G Over these prison walls I would fly
C And I'd fly to the arms of my darling
G And there I'd be willing to die
C Now I wish I had someone to love me
G Someone to call me their own
C Oh I wish I had someone to live with
G 'Cause I'm tired of living alone
C In my mind I have a grand ship on the ocean
G All mounted with silver and gold
C And before my poor darling would suffer
G That ship would be anchored and sold
C I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow
G Leaving my poor darling all alone
C With the cold prison bars all around me
G And my head on a pillow of stone repeat #1
