BARS ACROSS THE WINDOWS (Sheb Wooley) Sheb Wooley - 1960 Bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more Take away these bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more (Well, uh, tell me your story son) It was late one evenin' as the sun went down Money in my pocket as I rode into town I saw my sweetheart in the arms of dashing Billy Brown In a flash of anger I shot old Billy down Now I've got bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more (Uh, then what did you do, son?) Billy lay so quiet, his lips as cold as clay I headed south for Texas, a thousand miles away Headlines scream a warnin', "Killer On The Run" My luck played out in Texas lookin' down a ranger's gun Now I've got bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more (Well, what did they do to yuh, boy?) The judge rapped down his mallet, the court was hushed and quiet The jury brought the verdict, I grew sick inside My sweetheart was crying, vowed she loved me true As they led me to this jailhouse where I've got life to do Now I've got bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more Take away these bars across the windows, bars across the door I'm locked behind these everlastin' bars forever more (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2011)
