                                                        E 
 	 The judge had no mercy on this Waycross,Georgia boy
           A                                 D                  A    
 	 Staring at those four grey wall in silence,Lord he listened
 	                                                E

 	 With a bullet in his side he cried,have you seen Mabel Joy
          D                                                    A
