Lyrics

Sixteen years

I used to worry while she was gone
She went out shopping said she wouldn't be gone long
But sixteen years have passed me by
Since they found me guilty because I didn't have an alibi

When she came back they set me free
I got a pardon but I got no apology
But after sixteen years dependency
The only place I call my home is in the penitentiary

I begged forgiveness from above
Before I shot the only girl that I will ever love
I waited for the cops and handed them my gun
I said "take me back to prison boys, 'cos justice must be done"


Finally they've come to shave my head

For sixteen years I waited to be dead

So bury me next to the girl who caused so much pain

And write this on my headstone "she will never leave my side again"
