Intro: Dm * Dm *
Dm           C         G                Dm*
When I was a young boy, I went out on my own
Dm         C                 G               Dm*
I got into trouble, I didn't know right from wrong
G                  C        Dm*
I've got this prison for my home.
Dm                   C                 G        Dm*           
I got off a train in Memphis, I didn't know the town
Dm             C              G          Dm*   
I met a pretty young girl, to show me around
G           C         Dm*    
To show me around the town.
Dm             C                 G          Dm*
She said I know where, there's a light upon me
Dm                  C              G           Dm*
It's in the Memphis bank, come and rob it with me
G                  C                       Dm*
I shot the guard, now they're coming after me.
Dm                       C         G           Dm*
If I had my life to live over, I'd be a better man
Dm                      C                G             Dm*
I wouldn't get into the trouble, and I'd try to understand
G                    C               Dm*
I wouldn't have this prison for my home.
G                C            Dm*
These four gray walls for my home
