lyrics

He swears he’s innocent
Maybe it’s true
Don’t mean much to me
Got a job to do
Lock him in that
Cell each night
He gets no blanket
Just the one light

He got 15 to life
Time enough, I would say

Sometimes he shoots off
in the yard
I toss him in the hole
Nah it ain’t hard
Sure I see
the worst in men
But my place ain’t far away
I’m home in 10

He got 15 to life
Time enough, I would say

I like the sound
Of steel on steel
Hard boots on tile
A bird who’ll squeal
He got nailed for
Murder two
Me I just got
A job to do

Got me a job for life
Time enough, I would say
