Lyrics



Half His Life In Prison

Every family has one
Black sheep of the family
My daddy broke the law so much
They'll never set him free
He always was in trouble
A problem without fail
He spent half his life in prison
And the other half in jail

Spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail
Never got to see the man
Even when he posted bail
When mama went to visit
He just stayed inside his cell
He spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail

His rap sheet is a long one
That's why he's doing time
From bootlegging to forgery
He's committed every crime
He robbed a bank in Waco
And a man on the Chisholm Trail
He spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail

He spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail
I never got to see the man
Even when he posted bail
When mama went to visit
He just stayed inside his cell
He spent half his life in prison
And the other half in jail

He shot a man in Dallas
Then stabbed him with a knife
He broke into a Baptist Church
And he raped the preacher's wife
Never missed a lineup
Picked his face most every time
It got to where the Sheriff said
He's good for every crime

He spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail
I never got to see the man
Even when he posted bail
When mama went to visit
He just stayed inside his cell
He spent half his life in prison
The other half in jail
He spent half his life in prison
And the other half in jail
