Hank Snow – The Prisoner's Song lyrics

Written by Guy Massey
Recorded by Hank Snow

Oh I wish I had someone to love me yes someone to call me their own
Oh I wish I had someone to live with cause I'm tired of living all alone
Please meet me tonight in the moonlight please meet me tonight all alone
For I had a sad story to tell you it's a story that's never been told
(I'll be carried to the new jail tomorrow leaving my poor darling all alone)
With the cold prison bars all around me and my head on a pillow of stone
Now I have a grand ship out on the ocean all mounted with silver and gold
And before my poor darling would suffer that ship would be anchored and sold
Now if I had the wings of an angel over these prison walls I would fly
And I'd fly to the arms of my poor darling and there I'd be willing to die
