EYES OF DEATH (Danny Dill) Hank Williams Jr. - 1965 They sent me to this prison for a crime I did outside I killed a man and didn't hang, but I might as well have died For ev'ry minute that I live I know that death may call You see his brother's here with me right inside these walls And I don't even know his face, but I'm sure that he knows mine The eyes of death are watchin' me, just bidin' his time (Oh Lord, he takes his time) Each night they slam my lonely cell and turn the lights down low And I can't close my eyes to sleep because somewhere I know He's plannin' how he'll drive the knife into my poundin' heart And, Lord, this just not knowin' when will tear a man apart He's just a number, not a name and he'll get me from behind The eyes of death are watchin' me, just bidin' his time (Oh Lord, he takes his time) Sometimes I think I'll try the wall and face the deadly guns I'd either die or I'd be free to leave this place and run This man he's sworn to make me pay, but he'd rather see me cry So he'll just play around with me while I wait to die No prison ever held a man with a sentence just like mine The eyes of death are watchin' me, just bidin' his time (Oh Lord, he takes his time) He's bidin' his time (Oh Lord, he takes his time) He's just bidin' his time (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2012)
