[Verse 1]
Dm                                               C             G
It was late one night in the heart of town I was drinking all alone
    Dm                             F            G
Ran out of cash when I paid my tab so I headed home
    Dm                                      C                 G
The night was black, the air was thick as I wandered passed a barn
       F                                    A              Dm
Then a shot rang out and I heard a scream beside me in the dark

[Verse 2]
Dm                               C          G
Afraid that maybe I’d be next I started to run
Dm                                        F           G
Just as fast as my feet would go into the barrel of a gun
    Dm                                     C               G
The lawman’s light was blinding me he said why’d you do it son
F                                         A            Dm
Two weeks later in a criminal court I was up on murder one

[CHORUS]
F                C      G                Dm
Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green
F                C    G                     Dm
Beside the still water I’ll awake from this dream- This terrible dream

[Verse 3]
Dm                                       C                 G
Well I sat there in the courtroom as the tears ran down my face
  Dm                                    F             G
A guilty man is free somewhere and they put me in his place
    Dm                            C                   G
The jury read the verdict and the judge called out my name
   F                                     A                    Dm
He said young man you’ll spend your life wearing the ball and chain

[Verse 4]
Dm                                  C              G
Now I’m staring at the ceiling as I lay here on my bed
Dm                                  F               G
Fourteen long and lonely years it’s where I laid my head
  Dm                                C                G
Behind these cold gray prison walls time sure passes slow
      F                          A                 Dm
And I unless I die tomorrow I’ve still got life to go

[CHORUS]
F                C      G                Dm
Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green
F                C    G                     Dm
Beside the still water I’ll awake from this dream- This terrible dream

[Verse 5]
  Dm                             C             G
A man who’s lost his vision will live and die alone
       Dm                           F                   G
In the cold walls of this prison my heart has turned to stone
    Dm                             C             G
The lights are growing dimmer as I take my final breath
      F                             A                Dm
I can smell the air of freedom as I close my eyes in death

[CHORUS]
F                C      G                Dm
Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green
F                C    G                     Dm
Beside the still water I’ll awake from this dream- This terrible dream
