lyrics

As the sheriff rides up to the house
I think of how I’ll miss them
and I hope they’’ll member me for better things
Like how I held her little hands
and kissed her tiny face
and all the little songs we used to sing

But a man lies dead on the porch and his blood is on the grass

Now my father tells me son
you’ll have to pay for all your sins or else you’ll
have them visited upon your kin
I ran into the parlor and I
asked my little baby daughter
can you live with all your daddy did

The sheriff put his hand upon my shoulder and said son it’s time to go

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

As I sit here in this tiny cell
I’m waiting for the verdict and I’m
hoping that they’ll see my point of view
the man I shot he threatened all my
children and he told me that my
wife will beg that he would kill her too

so I put a bullet fast and deep into the evil place that the thought was formed

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me

Now I’m standing in the gallows
underneath the nooses shadow
waiting for the pardon that won’t come
Jesus I’ve not asked for nothing
now I’m begging you for something
Keep my baby girls all safe and warm

give them all the peace and love that I myself couldn’t give them on my own

when I’m gone sing a song
and please forgive the things I’ve done
just don’t forget me
please don’t forget me
Sing aloud sing and shout
I’ll be humble I’ll be proud
just don’t forget me
don’t forget me
