Lynyrd Skynyrd - Intro: D A G D Now these four walls of Raiford closing in on me. A G D Doing three to five hard labor for armed robbery. D I put two years well behind me, but I could not wait the time A G D For everytime I thought about it, Lord I died some more inside. D And they put stripes on my back. Memories of hurt. A G D And the only time I seen sunshine is when I shoveled dirt. D Digging ditches on the chain gain and sleeping in the holes. A G D Oh Lord, please forgive me because I could not wait paroll. Chorus: D G And I'm coming home to see my Jesus. D Lord, it feels so close this time. A D Please have mercy on a soldier from the Georgia-Florida mines. G When they find me they must kill me. A G Oh Jesus save my soul. I can't go back down to Raiford. D I can't take that anymore. D When Vietnam was over there was no work here for me. A G D I had a hungry wife and children that I had to feed. D Now they say I'm guilty, when they find me I must die. A G D Only me and Jesus know that I never stole a dime. D These last few years behind me, Lord they've been so sad. A G D I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad. D And when they find me and kill me, yes when they shoot me down. A G D Won't you fly old glory proudly with my medals on the ground. Chorus 2x Tag: I can't go back down to raiford, I can't take that anymore.
