[Verse]
         F                          C
Well I'm Goin' to a place where the tough guys go,
    Dm       C    A#
and come out even tougher.
  F                       C
A place where a man don't show his feelings,
  Dm                C     A#
a place where a man don't cry.
          F                               C
Well they say I'm being punished and they say
                       Dm             C     A#
I can be reformed, but someday I'll return.
         F                 C
Did they really think that this time it'd work?
    Dm                C      A#
You knew all along it wouldn't!


[Chorus]
F       C
Oh, I'm prison bound,
        Dm        C        A#
I did a crime one too many times.
            F
It's on the outskirts of town,
       C
by the railroad tracks,
          Dm      C    A#
where the country moon shines.
F       C
Oh, I'm prison bound,
        Dm           C        A#
tell my girl I'll be back one day.
F       C                   Dm         C         A#
Oh, I'm prison bound, I may never know any other,
          F   C  Dm  C  A#
any other way,
          F   C  Dm  C  A#
any other way.


[Verse]
          F                         C
Well they take away my freedom of expression
                Dm            C        A#
and action, but Johnny says I walk the line.
     F                           C
With three hots and a cot, and allot of talk
     Dm       C             A#
that locks up concrete and steel
          F                              C
Well it's cold and it's clammy, and it's colder
                              Dm    C     A#
than a pimp's heart, but I've gotta do my time.
          F
There's a lesson to be learned here,
    C                        Dm          C      A#
but what a price to pay, you know, I may never learn


[Chorus]
F       C
Oh, I'm prison bound,
        Dm        C        A#
I did a crime one too many times.
            F
It's on the outskirts of town,
       C
by the railroad tracks,
          Dm      C    A#
where the country moon shines.
F       C
Oh, I'm prison bound,
        Dm           C        A#
tell my girl I'll be back one day.
F       C                   Dm         C         A#
Oh, I'm prison bound, I may never know any other,
          F   C  Dm  C  A#
any other way,
          F   C  Dm  C  A#
any other way.
