[Intro]
G D C G G
 
[Verse 1]
     G             D             
I've got a sad sad story friends 
     C               G
that I don't like to tell,
  G              D      
I had a home and family 
          C                 G
when they locked me in this cell,
C                 D               
I've been in here eighteen years, 
  C                 G
a long, long time I know,
G                     D            
But time don't mean a thing to me, 
       C                G     G
'cause I've got life to go.
 
[Verse 2]
        G                        D     
Well I went one night where the lights 
                     C                G
were bright just to see what I could see,
G                D          
I met up with an old friend 
    C                    G
who thought the world of me,
        C                    D       
Well he bought me drinks and took me 
         C             G
to every honky tonk in town,
G                    D              
Words were said, and now he's dead, 
       C                G        G
I just had to bring him down.
 
[Verse 3]
           G                D        
Well it's been a long long time now, 
       C                  G
since I've heard from my wife,
G                   D        
I know I'd be there with her 
     C                G
if I hadn't used that knife,
       C               D            
Well I bet that little girl of mine 
C                G
don't realize or know,
    G                   D               
Her Daddies's been here eighteen years, 
  C                 G        G
I still got life to go.

[Verse 4]
          G                   D           
Well I'll bet there's not one man outside 
      C                  G
who's spent this long in jail.
     G               D      
I'll be here in this prison 
        C             G
'til my body's just a shell.
      C                D  
No, I can't be free to go 
            C                 G
and see the one's that I love so.
G                 D              
I've been in here eighteen years 
     C                 G
and still have life to go
C                    G
I still have life to go (repeat and fade)
