365 Days

I got a pair of black boots, no laces
I got some books I’ve read them all a thousand times
I got one leather belt
To keep my pants up off of my knees
And 365 days
For’ they set me free

I’m gona get me a girl, a real hot mama
I’m gona get a dog, raise me up some chickens
Move up on the hill side
On the edge of Bear Creek
In 365 days
Whene they set me free

I ain’t never hurt nobody I just like money
I robbed some liquer stores then I robbed a bank
They overtook me up in Bay City
Where I was lost in a Dream
I got 365 days
For’ they set me free

I share my cell with a man named Jimmy Jorje
He killed his girlfriend and her daughter he’ll be here for life
I hear him crying some nights
But I never say a thing
I got 365 days
For they set me free

I work in the laundry and I try to keep my head down
I play chess with the boys out in the yard
But I get scared sometimes
Like somebodys got it out for me
And I got 365 days
For they set me free

At night I hear the wind singing
I hear the crickets keeping time
I hear echo’s in the darkness
I hear a man scream
I got 365 days
For’ they set me free
