Lyrics

25 Years

G
All my life
D
You’ve been waiting on the day
C
For me to lose my cool
G
And get locked away

I never thought
That you’d be right
Until I caught you
Loving on my girl that night


Am
I crept in slowly through the door
D
With the lights dimmed low

And both you naked on the floor
Am
I pulled out my .44
D
Shot you twice in the head
Then took my girl to bed

Chorus – G-B7-C-G-D-D

G B7 C G
And now it’s 25 years in the federal pen
D
So I’ll know what it’s like
To pay for my sins

G B7 C G
Oh it’s 25 years in the jailhouse son
D
So I can pay my debt
And I won’t forget
D
Not to play around with guns

Now I’m sitting
In a cold, dark cell
Waiting out this life
On my way to hell

Ain’t got no friends
Ain’t got no family
Just one painful reminder
And a memory

Of when I crept in slowly through the door
With the lights dimmed low
And both you naked on the floor
I pulled out my .44
Shot you twice in the head
Then took my girl to bed

And now it’s 25 years in the federal pen
So I’ll know what it’s like
To pay for my sins


Em
Oh the time I’m serving
C G
Is the harshest truth to know
Em
And this ball and chain is\
C D
All I’ve got to show
G
For my life

Solo – G7-B7-C-G 3x D-D-Em-Em-C-C-D-D

Well this jail is my home
These walls my friends
And I won’t ever see
The light of day again

No lesson learned
Can turn back time
No lesson learned
Will erase my crime

I crept in slowly through the door
With the lights dimmed low
And both you naked on the floor
I pulled out my .44
Shot you twice in the head
Then took my girl to bed
