San Quentin  
Johnny Cash 

(Capo 1st. Fret to match Live CD)
(Intro A-E7-A)
  A                       E7            A
San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me
                         D              A
You've gladded me since nineteen sixty three
  D                                           A 
I've seen 'em come and go and I've seen them die
                E7             A 
And long ago I stopped askin' why

 A                   E7           A 
San Quentin, I hate evry inch of you.
                         D                  A 
You've cut me and have scarred me thru an' thru.
     D                            A
And I'll walk out a wiser, weaker man
                        E7              A
Mister Congressman why can't you understand.

(Solo A-E7-A-E7-A-D-A-E7-A)

A                      E7                A
San Quentin, what good do you think you do?
                            D                     A
Do you think that I'll be different when you're through?
     D                                      A
You bent my heart and mind and you warp my soul,
                          E7             A 
Your stone walls turn my blood a little cold.

A                     E7              A
San Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell.
                         D             A 
May your walls fall and may I live to tell.
     D                              A
May all the world forget you ever stood.
                  E7                     A 
And may all the world regret you did no good.
                           E7           A 
San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me.
