Ballad of the Regretful Sinner.mp3

Who’s gonna watch my boys when I’m in prison?
Who’s gonna teach them how to love and show them how to fight?
How can I be their pa when I’m in prison?
I shot their ma and it’s thirty years to life.

Who’s gonna take my ma when I’m in prison?
She ain’t getting younger now and I’m her only child.
How can I be her son when I’m in prison?
And who’ll be there to put her in the ground?

How I wish I could return and change that place and time
Things were slow at the factory and they said to take the night
But when I made it home, my girl was not alone
And in my rage I gunned that women down.

Who’s gonna take my dog when I’m in prison?
Take him out and run him ’round when come hunting time?
How can he survive if I’m in prison?
All his life he’s always by my side.

How I wish I could return and change that place in time
I’d beat her up and I’d throw her out and there I’d draw the line
But I’ve always had a flaw of a heart I can’t control
And in my rage I gunned that woman down.

Who’s gonna take my girls when I’m in prison?
Scare away there boyfriends and teach them how to drive?
How can I be there pa when I’m in prison?
Who’ll be there to give away the bride?

How I wish I could return and change that place and time
I’d take the kids and I’d go to town and I’d cool down for a while
But when I saw her in the throws I felt my world explode
And in my rage I gunned that woman down.
