Austin prison
they had a warrant out form e all over the country.
And i was tryin? to beat the raps in idaho;
I was brekin? into a schoolhouse sunday mornin? without warnin?,
When i saw the sheriff comin? for me slow from down below.
his steel grey eyes were blazin? when he saw me,
His hand was on his gun when he rode up;
He said: ?you killed that woman,
I know you shot her, why?d you do it?
I?m taking you to austin, then i?m gonna lock you up.?
well, he tied me with a blow iron the next mornin?,
And he had me deep in texas the next day.
A crazy, screamin? lynch mob waited in the streets of austin.

But he put me in the jailhouse, and he threw away the key.
a jury found me guilty three months later,
Twelve evil men with murder in their eyes.
They even took me out and said:
?now, show us where you killed her!?
And that wicked judge said:
?now, i hereby sentence you to die.?
but here i am quite a way from austin prison;
My friend, the jailer, handed me a file.
Now, all i want between me and there,
Are a lot of friendly people,
And miles, and miles, and miles,
And miles, and miles, and miles.
