Life to Go
recorded by Stonewall Jackson
written by George Jones
G                  D7                C               G
I've got a sad sad story friend that I don't like to tell
                 D7               C                 G
I had a home and family when they locked me in this cell
     C            D7               C                G
I've been in here eighteen years a long long time I know
                      D7                C                G
But time don't mean a thing to me cause I've got life to go
                 D7                                   C                G
I went one night where the lights were bright just to see what I could see
                 D7                  C                    G
I met up with an old friend who just thought the world of me
       C                         D7               C             G
Well he brought me drinks and he took me to every honky tonk in town
                         D7                   C                G
Then words were said and now he's dead I just had to bring him down
                           D7             C                  G
Well it's been a long long time now since I've heard from my wife
                    D7                C               G
I know I'd be there with her yet if I hadn't used the knife
          C               D7           C                G
Well I'll bet that little girl of mine don't realize or know
                      D7                 C                 G
Her daddy's been here eighteen years and still got life to go
                              D7                 C                  G
Well I'll bet there's not one man outside that's spent more time in jail
                     D7             C             G
I'll be here in this prison till my body's just a shell
     C                D7             C                G
No I can't be free to go and see the ones that I love so
                  D7                  C                 G
I've been in here eighteen years I've still got life to go
