lyrics

I saw the setting sun and I knew that here’s as far as I would run
So I turned to face the dogs and gave myself to the long arm of the law
I raised both my hands and I let the warden’s man drag me away
And I looked into those hardened eyes and asked “Son, whatcha think they’ll say after I die?”

“Well drifter, they’ll pilfer all that you know
Starting with the life you left behind before death row
And your momma’s heart won’t heal the hole ‘cuz for your soul when you die
Heaven ain’t nigh.”

I heard footsteps approach and I saw them holding what the jury wrote
And I knew what was in store ‘cuz I’ve seen men walk down that hallway before
They clapped both my hands in the tightest iron bands that they could find
And I looked into those steely eyes and asked “warden, what’ll they do after I die?”

“Well drifter, they’ll pilfer all that you know
Starting with the life you left behind before death row
And your momma’s heart won’t heal the hole ‘cuz for your soul when you die
Heaven ain’t nigh.”

I walked down the row – you never told me how it feels so much like home
I saw through the coldest eyes that the world has ever made and left outside
Up the stairs I rose to take my rightful place upon my throne
They closed and locked the door and I asked the preacher what awaits me when I die

“Well drifter, they’ll pilfer all that you know
Starting with the life you left behind before death row
And your momma’s heart won’t heal the hole ‘cuz for your soul when you die
Heaven ain’t nigh.”
