person in prison missing home and loved ones

Story Behind the Song

My cousin was in prison for a while.


I Want To Hear You Laugh

T. Edwin Doss

Hello, Mom and Dad.
How ya'll getting' along?
Sorry, I haven't written much, all my stamps are wrong.
They keep on changin' numbers.... mail keeps comin' back.
I open them read out loud, place them in a sack.

These old prison walls are cold most of the day,
All my friends are spiders, spinnin' webs along the way.
Names and numbers scratched around....I've read the Bible seven times
I own my own business... tradin' candy bars for dimes....
To call you......just to hear you cry.......
Oh, but, I want to hear you laugh

So, I hope this one reaches you
The last fifteen are here
Ask Uncle Luke to work my dogs,
Try to ease off that German beer
If you ever see Louise, tell her I'm doin' fine
Have her send a picture... have the kids write sometime
