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


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


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


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