Story Behind the Song

Inspired by the famous poem of Oscar Wilde The Ballad of Reading Gaol, a man spending his last hours in his cel before he swings. Just guitar, dobro and steel, a cowboy song sung by my favorite singer Chad Hudson.

Lyrics

Caught on the run

The jury reached their verdict
Guilty on all counts
Matters will turn dark now

A narrow cell in which I dwell
Darkness in my heart and
twilight in my cell

Chorus:
Caught on the run
I can hear the bell
There is no sermon on the day
On which they hang a man
Caught on the run
Soon they`ll take me from my cell
There is no sermon on the day
On which they hang a man

A few steps to the cord
And the sliding board
Only blood can wipe out blood

Now that time has come
Some weep some sigh
Soon my soul will rest

Chorus
Bridge:
Always killed what
I once loved
But dead lips won`t talk

Don't cry for me
Just say a prayer
Something died in me too long ago

Now that time has come
Some weep some sigh
Soon my soul will rest

Chorus
