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


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


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


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