[Verse]
E
Well them four walls of Raiford, closing in on me.
B                              A         G     E
Doin' three to five hard labor for armed robbery.
E 
I had two years well behind me, but I could not wait the time
B                                        A              G    E
For everytime I thought about it, Lord I died some more inside.

E                            
And they put stripes on my back.  Memories of hurt.
B                                 A               G     E
And the only time I seen sunshine is when I shoveled dirt.
E
Digging ditches on the chain gain and sleeping in the holes.
B                                    A         G    E
Oh Lord, please forgive me because I could not wait paroll.

[Chorus]
A  
And I'm coming home to see my Jesus.
E                    
Lord, it feels so close this time.
B                                       A        G      E
Please have mercy on a soldier from the Florida-Georgia line.
A        
When they find me they must kill me.
E                               B              
Oh Jesus save my soul.  I can't go back down to Raiford.
        A         G     E          
I can't take that anymore.

[Verse]
E
When Vietnam was over there was no work here for me.
B                                A      G      E    
I had a hungry wife and children that I had to feed.
E
Now they say I'm guilty, when they find me I must die.
B                             A     G       E
Only me and Jesus know that I never stole a dime.

E
These last few years behind me, Lord they've been so sad.
B                                        A        G   E
I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad.
E
And when they find me and kill me, yes when they shoot me down.
B                                       A      G      E
Won't you fly old glory proudly with my medals on the ground.

[Chorus]
A  
And I'm coming home to see my Jesus.
E                    
Lord, it feels so close this time.
B                                       A        G      E
Please have mercy on a soldier from the Florida-Georgia line.
A        
When they find me they must kill me.
E                               B              
Oh Jesus save my soul.  I can't go back down to Raiford.
        A         G     E          
I can't take that anymore.

[Chorus]
A  
And I'm coming home to see my Jesus.
E                    
Lord, it feels so close this time.
B                                       A        G      E
Please have mercy on a soldier from the Florida-Georgia line.
A        
When they find me they must kill me.
E                               B              
Oh Jesus save my soul.  I can't go back down to Raiford.
        A         G     E          
I can't take that anymore.

The chords match with the "dubbed" version released on "Legend" album in 1987, right? The Undubbed Demo in the 1991 Box set was different a little bit.
