In The Gravelyard

print

   In the gravel yard, with a number for my name
   Making little rocks out of big rocks all day
   Oh, the work is mighty hard in the gravel yard
   I’ll never be a free man, so they say

Warden hear my plea, listen now to me
I killed a man that I caught with my wife
You’d probably done the same, so I am not to blame
Sentenced to the rest of my life

In the driven rain with a ball and chain
My hammer rings a low mournful sound
It sings a little song for the ones who done me wrong
Who lie beneath the cold, cold ground
