-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Country Bass
E-mail: aaron.white8@education.nsw.gov.au

Tuning: Standard

The Actual song is played with capo on the 8th fret, 
but to play it easier I put my capo on the 4th fret, 
but either way the chords are the same
Capo 4th

 G C  x2

G                     C
 These four walls of Farnworth
G                 C
 Are closin' in on me
G                 C
 My final meal's over
G                    C
 They're gonna set me free
C                       G
 I can feel the fire's a burnin'
C                        G
 As the devil guards my door
C                           Am
 I hit my knees in search of Jesus
      C    D         G
 On a cold jailhouse floor


                G      C
 Lord, now I'm singin'
                 G     C
 "Get me out of here"
             C
 I see the preacher's eyes
         G
 As my daughter cries
            Am              D
 When they strap me in this chair
                    G         C
 Lord, I hope she forgives me
      G                      C
 For livin' my life this way
G
 Tonight I ride the lightning
        D       G    C
 To my final judgment day


G                 C
 Every life owes a death
G                     C
 That's what the Bible says
G                  C 
 I owe mine to this state
G                        C
 For shootin' that boy to death
C              G
 A liquor store attendant
       C                G
 He was reachin' for his gun
        C                Am
 Now his Momma sits there smilin'
       C           D          G   
 As the boss yells "Roll on one


Chorus 


G                  C
 A hungry blue eyed baby cryin'
G                C
 Made me rob that store
G                         C
 An' as that boy lay there dyin'
G                          C
 I dropped my pistol on the floor
C                          
 Yeah, I'd take it all back
            G 
 but there's nothin' I can do
        Am 
 They've covered my face
        G
 An' the order's gone through
       C          D         G
 As the boss yells "Roll on, two"


Chorus


G                     C
 These four walls of Farnworth
G                 C
 Are closin' in on me
