Some Early Morning Lyrics

Some Early Morning - Dan Tyminski

It was late one night in the heart of town

I was drinking all alone

 

Ran out of cash when I paid my tabs so

I headed home

 

The night was black the air was thick as

I wandered passed a barn

 

Then a shot came out and

I heard a scream beside me in the dark

 

Afraid that maybe I'd be next I started to run

Just as fast as my feet would go into the barrel of a gun

 

The lawman's light was blinding me

He said why'd you do it son

 

Two weeks later in the criminal court

I was up on murder one

 

Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green

Beside the still water

 

I'll awake from this dream

This terrible dream

 

Well I sat there in the courtroom

As the tears ran down my face

 

A guilty man is free somewhere

And they put me in his place

 

The jury ran the verdict

And the judge called out my name

 

He said young man

You'll spend your life wearing the ball and chain

 

I'm staring at the ceiling as I lay here on my bed

 

Fourteen long and lonely years it's where I laid my head

 

Behind these cold gray prison walls time sure passes slow

And I guess if I die tomorrow I'd still got a life to go

 

Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green

 

Beside the still water I'll awake from this dream

This terrible dream

 

A man who's lost his vision will live and die alone

 

In the cold walls of this prison

My heart has turned to stone

 

The lights are growing dimmer as

I take my final breath

 

I can smell the air of freedom as

I close my eyes in death

 

Maybe some early morning in a pasture of green

 

Beside the still water

 

I'll awake from this dream

 

This terrible dream
