[INTRO]
C F C G

[VERSE]
C                                  F
The warden said he'd mail my letter
C                                 G
The chaplain's waitin' by the door
C                              F
Tonight we'll cross the yard together
C                              G
Then they can't hurt me anymore

[CHORUS]
       C    G/B        Am    Em
'Cause I am going over yonder
F        C                G
Where no ghost can follow me
C                        F
There's another place beyond here
      C           G
Where I'll be free I believe, you can...

[VERSE]
C                  F
Give my radio to Johnson
C                         G
Thibodeaux can have my fan
C                       F
Send my Bible home to Mama
C                          G
Call her every now and then

[CHORUS]
       C    G/B        Am    Em
'Cause I am going over yonder
F        C                G
Where no ghost can follow me
C                        F
There's another place beyond here
      C           G
Where I'll be free I believe

[INSTRUMENTAL]
C G/B Am Em F C G

[VERSE]
C                        F
I suppose I got it comin'
C                      G
I can't ever pay enough
C                       F
All my rippin' and a runnin'
C                      G
I hurt everyone I loved

[VERSE]
C                          F
The world'll turn around without me
C                           G
The sun'll come up in the east
C                                 F
Shinin' down on all of them that hate me
C                             G
I hope my goin' brings 'em peace

[CHORUS]
     C    G/B        Am    Em
Well I am going over yonder
F        C                G
Where no ghost can follow me
C                        F
There's another place beyond here
      C           G
Where I'll be free that's what I believe
