[Verse]
                   D      
The court room was crowded, 
A
the judge waited there
My mother was crying when
D
I left my chair
The sentence were sharp
D7 G
for it cut like a knife
For ninety nine years boys
A D
is almost for life
[Verse]
D I dreamed of a whistle
A
I heard the bells ring
My sweetheart was coming
D
some good news to bring
D7 I knew that she loved me
G
And that she’d be true
D A She said she'd save me for
D
i'm as guilty as you
[Instrumental]
D A A7 D D G D A D [Verse]
They said I was a criminal
A
And to my despair
They sent me to Nashville boys
D
They shaved off my hair
So come hear my story
D7 G
I’ll tell you my fate
D I’m serving here in Nashville
A D
for another man’s hate
[Verse]
Well i just got this letter
A
From old Nashville town
And after I read it
D
My spirit broke down
D7 For it’s sad that my sweetheart
G
And the judge would be wed
D And here in your jailhouse
A D
I wish I was dead
[Instrumental]
D A A7 D D G D A D [Verse 5]
Well no matter how rightful folks
A
A man he may be
Bad company will send him
D
To prison like me
So take a good woman
D7 G
and make her your wife
For ninety nine years
A D
boys is almost for life
[Outro]
For ninety nine years
A D
boys is almost for life
