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
