G          Gmaj7    C/G
These four walls of Farnworth
G           Gmaj7 C/G 
Are closin' in on me 
G        Gmaj7   C/G
My final meal is over
G                Gmaj7  C/G 
They're gonna to set me free
      C              G 
I can feel the fires burning
       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  Gmaj7  C/G
Lord now I'm singin'
              G  Gmaj7  C/G 
Get me out of here 
          C
I see the preacher's eyes
      G/B 
As my daughter cries
          Am               D 
When they strap me in this chair
                G           Gmaj7  C
Lord I hope she forgives me 
    G              Gmaj7     C
For livin' my life this way
G                          
Tonight I'll ride the lightning
      D               G  Gmaj7  C/G 
To my final judgement day 


G     Gmaj7       C/G
Every life owes a death
G               Gmaj7 C/G 
That's what the Bible says
G     Gmaj7        C/G 
I owe mine to this state
G                 Gmaj7  C/G 
For shootin' that boy to death
C              G 
A liquor store attendant
       C                G 
He was reachin' for his gun
        C               Am 
Now his mama sits there smilin'
       C           D       G 
As the boss yells, Roll on one 

            G   Gmaj7  C
And now I'm singin'
              G  Gmaj7  C 
Get me out of here 
          C
I see the preacher's eyes
      G/B 
As my daughter cries
          Am               D 
When they strap me in this chair
           G           Gmaj7  C 
I hope she forgives me 
    G       Gmaj7    C 
For leavin' her this way
G        
Tonight I'll ride the lightining
      D             C
To my final resting place
 
Bm                 C  
A hungry blue-eyed baby cryin'
        G 
Made me rob that store 
Bm              C
And as that boy lay there dyin'
             G
I dropped my pistol on the floor
         C
Yeah I'd take it all back
                    G/B 
But there's nothin' I can do 
                Am
They've covered my face
                G/B 
And the order's gone through
            C 
As the boss yells, Roll on two 

        G  Gmaj7  C
Now I'm flyin' 
              G  Gmaj7  C
up and out of here 
  C                 G/B         
I close my eyes and slowly rise 
       Am              D
Let my body leave this chair 
                G          Gmaj7  C
Lord I hope you forgive me 
    G         Gmaj7     C
For livin' my life this way
G 
Tonight I ride the lightning
      D             C 
To my final resting place


G          Gmaj7    C/G
These four walls of Farnworth
G           Gmaj7 C/G     G 
Are closin' in on me
