Strumming

Hey, this is my first posting, and i never liked the other versions of Prison 
Bound on acoustic, so I thought I'd post my own.

"Prison Bound" by Social Distortion, on "Prison Bound" circa 1988

Standard Tuning, Capo 3rd Fret

All of the song follows a basic bass strum pattern for C and G, straight strumming for Am-F.

Intro: C G Am G F

Verse 1:
          C                         G                  Am       G    F
Well I'm Goin' to a place where the tough guys go, and come out even tougher.

          C                 G                  Am             G    F
A place where a man don't show his feelings, a place where a man don't cry.

          C                         G                                Am 
Well they say I'm being punished and they say I can be reformed, but someday 

G     F
I'll Return.

          C                  G                  Am       G    
Did they really think that this time it'd work? You knew all along it 

F
wouldn't!


Chorus:
C       G                     Am        G        F
Oh, I'm prison bound, I did a crime one too many times.

C                                     G                          Am
It's on the outskirts of town, by the railroad tracks, where the country

G    F
moon shines.

C       G                     Am        G            F
Oh, I'm prison bound, tell my girl I'll be back one day.

C       G                     Am        G        F
Oh, I'm prison bound, I may never know any other, any other way.

C          G       Am     G      F
any other way.


Verse 2:
         C                         G                          Am
Well they take away my freedom of expression and action, but Johnny says I

G        F
walk the line.

         C                         G                  Am       G         F
With three hots and a cot, and allot of talk that locks up concrete and steel

         C                                G      
Well it's cold and it's clammy, and it's colder than a pimp's heart, but I've

Am    G     F
gotta do my time.

         C                         G                               Am
There's a lesson to be learned here, but what a price to pay, you know, I may

G      F
never learn.


Chorus: (Play 2x more)

C       G                     Am        G        F
Oh, I'm prison bound, I did a crime one too many times

C                                     G                          Am
It's on the outskirts of town, by the railroad tracks, where the country

G    F
moon shines.

C       G                     Am        G            F
Oh, I'm prison bound, tell my girl I'll be back one day.

C       G                     Am        G        F
Oh, I'm prison bound, I may never know any other, any other way.

C          G       Am     G      F
Any other way.

This doesn't sound right. It's G, D, Em, C. I prefer playing it with Capo on 3rd fret but it works well without as well.
