Verse 1(Slightly Palm muted)

D         D/C#       G/B
These four walls of Farnworth

Are closin' in on me

D          D/C#      G/B
They're gonna set me free

I can feel the fire's a burnin'
       G                 D
As the devil guards my door
         G              G/F#  Em
I hit my knees in search of Jesus
     G    A         D          
On a cold jailhouse floor



Chorus 1
               D    D/C#  G/B
Lord, now I'm singin'
               D    D/C#  G/B
Get me out of here
              G
I see the preacher's eyes
       G/F#
As my daughter cries

When they strap me in this chair

For livin' my life this way
D
Tonight I ride the lightning
      A7
To my final judgment day


Verse 2

Every life owes a death
That's what the Bible says
I owe mine to this state
For shootin' that boy to death
A liquor store attendant
He was reachin' for his gun
Now his Momma sits there smilin'
As the boss yells Roll on one

Chorus 2
 
And now I'm singin'
Get me out of here
I see the preacher's eyes
As my daughter cries
When they strap me in this chair
Lord I hope she forgives me
For leaving her this way
Tonight I ride the lightning
To my final restin' place

Bridge

Fm                 G
A hungry blue eyed baby cryin'
        D       (G/B   D  G/B)
Made me rob that store
Fm               G
An' as that boy lay there dyin'
              D            (G/B  D  G/B)
I dropped my pistol on the floor
                  G                            G/F#
Yeah, I'd take it all back but there's nothin' I can do
        Em
They've covered my face
        G/F#
An' the order's gone through 
         G            
As the boss yells Roll on, two


Final Chorus (Slightly Palm muted)

Now I'm flyin'
Up an' out of here
I close my eyes an' slowly rise
Let my body leave this chair
Lord I hope you forgive me
For livin' my life this way
D
Yeah, tonight I ride the lightning
      G       A7      G      G/F#   G  G/F#
To my final restin' place


These four walls of Farnworth
Are closin' in on me
