Austin Prison
Written and recorded by Johnny Cash

G
They had a warrant out for me all over the country
D7
And I was tryin' to beat two raps in Idaho
G C
I was breakin' into a schoolhouse Sunday mornin' without warnin'
G D7 G D7 G
When I saw the sheriff comin' for me slow from down below

D7 G
His steel grey eyes were blazing when he saw me
D7
His hand was on his gun when he rode up
G C
He said you killed that woman I know you shot her why'd you do it
G D7 G D7 G
I'm takin' you to Austin and I'm gonna lock you up

D7 G
Well he tied me with a plow line the next mornin'
D7
And he had me deep in Texas the next day
G C
A crazy screamin' lynch mob waited in the streets of Austin
G D7 G D7 G
But he put me in the jailhouse and he threw the key away

D7 G
A jury found me guilty three months later
D7
Twelve evil men with murder in their eye
G C
They even took me out and said now show us where you killed her
G D7 G D7 G
And that wicked judge said now I hereby sentence you to die

D7 G
But here I am far away from Austin prison
D7
My friend the jailer handed me a file
G C
Now all I want between me and there are a lot of friendly people
G D7
And miles and miles and miles and miles
G D7 G
And miles and miles and miles
