The Prisoner's Song
Written by Guy Massey



Chords


Song

1.

I wish I had someone to love me,
Someone to call me their own,
I wish I had someone to live with,
'cause I'm tired of livin' alone.

chorus:

Meet me tonight love, oh meet me,
Meet me out in the moonlight alone,
For I have a sad story to tell you,
It's a story that's never been told.

2.

I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow,
Leavin' my poor darlin' alone,
With the cold prison bars all around me,
And my head on a pillow of stone.

3.

Now I have a grand ship on the ocean,
All mounted with silver and gold,
And before my poor darlin' would suffer,
Oh, that ship would be anchored and sold.

4.

Now if I had wings like an angel,
Over these prison walls I would fly,
I would fly to the arms of my darlin',
And there I'd be willin' to die.
