G                                     D7
My mama always told me better than to play with a loaded gun

                                                G
If I'da just listened to her she'da never had a prisoner for a son

                                            C          G
The picture's still in front of my eyes the echo in my ears

         D7                                                   G
When the jury said he's guilty and the judge said ninety-nine years


                                                 D7
Oh for ninety-nine years I'll watch the sun rise over that same old sea

                                       G
Ninety-nine years nothing but an empty cell for company

                                                       
Yet there's not very much that stands between me 

        C              G
And the freedom I hold dear

       D7
Just a thousand bars a big brick wall
 
                              G
And a sentence of ninety-nine years


                                                D7
I kissed my darling on her tender lips and they took me by the hand


I had a nice little ride on a ferry boat
 
       G
To the rock where the prison stands

                                        C                   G
The warden said as he locked the door I hope you'll like it here

     D7                                                        G
Just make yourself at home you're gonna be with us ninety-nine years


                                                  D7
I've almost forgotten what my real name is been a number for so long

         
Making little bitty rocks out of great big rocks
 
     G
Gets old as the days wear on

                                               C           G
But I'll do my best for ninety-nine years just try to stay alive

          D7                                                 G
Cause the Governor said if I'd be good I'd get out in ninety-five


                                                 D7
Oh for ninety-nine years I'll watch the sun rise over that same old sea

                                       G
Ninety-nine years nothing but an empty cell for company

                                                       
Yet there's not very much that stands between me 

        C              G
And the freedom I hold dear

       D7
Just a thousand bars a big brick wall
 
                              G
And a sentence of ninety-nine years
