Capo 1st fret


||:   A     |     E     |     A     |     A    :||

A E ASan Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me.
D AYou've galled at me since nineteen-sixty-three.
D AI've seen 'em come and go and I've seen 'em die.
E AAnd long ago I stopped askin' why.
A E ASan Quentin, I hate ev'ry inch of you.
D AYou've cut me and you've scarred me through and through.
D AAnd I'll walk out a wiser, weaker man.
E AMister congressman, why can't you under-stand?
Guitar solo: ||: A | E | A | A :|| | D | D | A | A | | A | E | A | A |
A E ASan Quentin, what good do you think you do?
D ADo you think that I'll be different when you're through?
D AYou bend my heart and mind, and you warp my soul.
E AYour stone walls turn my blood a little cold.
A E ASan Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell.
D AMay your walls fall, and may I live to tell.
D AMay all the world forget you ever stood.
E AAnd the whole world will re-gret you did no good.
E ASan Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me.
