Prisoners Song
recorded by Sonny James
written by Guy Massey
G                          C
Now if I had wings like an angel
    D7                          G
Over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my darling
    D7                      G
And there I'd be willing to die
Now I wish I had someone to love me
    D7                   G
Someone to call me their own
Oh I wish I had someone to live with
       D7                  G
'Cause I'm tired of living alone
In my mind I have a grand ship on the ocean
    D7                      G
All mounted with silver and gold
And before my poor darling would suffer
     D7                         G
That ship would be anchored and sold
I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow
  D7                        G
Leaving my poor darling all alone
With the cold prison bars all around me
    D7                     G
And my head on a pillow of stone
repeat #1
