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
