               A                             D                  A  
I'VE GOT THOSE LOUISIANA STRIPES AND THEY'RE ALWAYS CHAINING ME DOWN
    A                                    E           A 
I'M IN HERE FOR 99 YEARS FOR SHOOTIN' MY WIFE TO THE GROUND
     A                             D                     A  
WELL SHE HAD TO LOVE MY FRIEND AND THAT'S NOT RIGHT WITH ME
     A                                                   E                      D
SO I GRABBED MY GUN, SHOT EM BOTH IN THE HEAD AND THEN I THREW THERE ASS IN THE CREEK


Chorus 1:
         D       A
WELL I'M DOIN MY TIME
        E         A   
IN THIS LOUISIANA PEN
D                   A 
THINKIN ABOUT MAYBE BEIN' FREE 
       E                   A
ON THE DAY THAT I'M A DEAD MAN


WELL, IT TOOK SOME GETTIN USED TO BEING LOCKED IN THIS PRISON CELL
BUT I ALWAYS HUM THOSE TUNES OF GEORGE JONES TO HELP ME THROUGH MY DAYS OF HELL
I'VE DONE 25 YEARS AND THAT'S ALRIGHT WITH ME
CAUSE I'VE GOT ME A LOTTA DAMN GOOD FRIENDS IN THIS LOUISIANA PENATENTARY

Chorus 2:
NOW I'M DOIN MY TIME 
IN THIS LOUISIANA PEN
THINKIN ABOUT MAYBE BEIN FREE ON THE DAY 
I'M WALKIN IN THAT FIELD OF FIRE IN THAT LOUISIANA PENENTARY

All the A chords should be Am. So important to the dark feeling of the song

I believe the A major sounds more authentic to the original my good humanoid.

At the end on the last line in the verse it should read A instead of D
