Over Yonder Lyrics

The warden said he?d mail my letter
Chaplain?s waitin? by the door
Tonight we?ll cross that yard together
Then they can?t hurt me anymore

Because I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There?s another place beyond here
Where I?ll be free I believe

You can give my radio to Johnson
Thibodeaux can have my fan
Just send my Bible home to Mama
Call her every now and then

Because I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There?s another place beyond here
Where I?ll be free I believe

I suppose I got it comin?
I can?t ever pay enough
And all my rippin? and a runnin?
I hurt everyone I loved

The world?ll turn around without me
The sun?ll come up in the east
Shinin? down on all of them that hate me
I hope my goin? brings ?em peace

Well I, I am going over yonder
Where no ghost can follow me
There?s another place beyond here
Where I?ll be free, yeah, that's what I believe
