Intro  Bm Am   Bm  D  Am  G  C  G  Bm

Verse 1

   G
My Mamma always taught me better 
        D
than to play with a loaded gun

If I'd just listened to her 
D7                G
She'd never had a prisoner for a son
                      G7
The pictures still in front of my eyes
        C          G
And the echo in my ears
    D
The jury said he's guilty
         D7           G      
And the judge said 99 years

riff  G  D D7 G C G 

Verse 2

G                                      G7
Well I kissed my Darlin' on her tender lips 
        D
and she took me by the hand
                              D7
I had a nice little ride on a ferry boat
       G
To the rocks where the prison stands
    G7
The Warden said as he locked the door
       C                G
Well I hope you like it here
     D
Just make yourself at home 
                D7         G   
you're gonna be with us 99 years

Verse 3


Well I've almost forgotten 

what my real name is
            D
I've been a number for so long
       D7
Making little-bitty rocks outta great big rocks
     G
Gets old as the days wear on
                        G7
But I'll do my best for 99 years
     C           G
Just try to stay alive
        D
But the Warden said if I do good
     D7         G
I'll get out in 95

Verse 4


Oh for 99 years I'll watch the sun
     D
rise over that same ole scene
D7                                 G
99 years with nothin' but an empty cell for company
                               G7       
Yes there's not very much that stands between me
        C              G
And the freedom I hold dear
       D                   D7
Just a thousand bars and a big thick wall
      D              C     G
And a sentence of 99 years
