VERSE 1:
G
My brother went to prison
        D              G*
He's in Kingston doin' time
       G
He got seven years for sellin'
               C              G*
What I've been smokin' all my life
G
Time off for good behavior
        D         C        Em
But the boy don't feel too good
C
Locked behind those steel bars
                   D
I don't know if he should

       G
Yeah a few years ago they called me
     D                 G
Back home to get a big award
     G
They also called my brother
         C               G*
But they made him say My Lord
     G
They locked me up in a Hall of Fame
    D      C       Em
And threw away the keys
    C
But when they put my brother away
                           D
It really did somethin' to me

CHORUS:
        D
Now I'm guilty as hell for sayin'
C                      G
Boy you better go back home
D
You know you'll get a fair shake there
      C           G
We're running all alone
        Em                    G
When he called me up from the border
         D        C      Em
With the Mounties on his tail
  C
I said go back to Canada
                 D
We can raise the bail

G
Now I get these letters
       D             G
From a cell with no TV
   G
He says he's outside one hour
    C             G
And inside twenty three
     G
Time off for good behavior
        D         C        Em
But the boy don't feel too good
C
Locked behind those steel bars
                   D
I don't know if he should
