The Lyrics Are Below

Four Walls of Raiford

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

(Ronnie VanZant -- Jeff Carlisi)

Well them four walls of Raiford, closing in on me

Doin' three to five hard labor, for armed robbery

I had two years behind, but I could not wait the time

Everytime I thought about it, well I died some more inside

 

And I had stripes on my back, memories that hurt

For the only time I seen sunshine is when I hit the dirt

Diggin' ditches for the chain gang, sleepin' in the cold

Oh Lord please forgive me for I could not wait no more

 

And I comin' home to see you Jesus

Well it feels so close this time

Please take mercy on this soldier

From the Florida-Georgia line

 

When they find me they must kill me

Oh Jesus save my soul

I can't go back down to Raiford

I can't take that anymore

 

Well these last few years behind me

Oh Lord, have been so sad

I fought proudly for my country when the times were bad

Now they say I'm guilty, when they find me I must die

Only me and Jesus know that I never stole a dime

 

Well when Vietnam was over there was no work here for me

I had a pretty wife awaitin and two kids I had to feed

Well I'm one of America's heroes and when they shoot me down

Won't fly old Glory proudly, put my medals in the ground

 

And I comin' home to see you Jesus

Well it feels so close this time

Please take mercy on this soldier

From the Florida-Georgia line

 

When they find me they must kill me

Oh Jesus save my soul

I can't go back down to Raiford

I can't take that anymore
