Twenty One Years Is A Mighty Long Time

Song Author Paul Clayton Worthington Performer: The Gibson Brothers Submitted by: Anonymous


[C]The judge said stand up lad and dry up your [G7]tears
You're sentenced to prison for twenty one [C]years
So dry up your tears love and [C7]kiss me good[F]bye  
The best friends [G7]must part love so must you and [C]I  

I hear the train coming t'will be here at [G7]nine   
To take me to prison to serve out my [C]time
I look down the railway [C7]and plainly I [F]see  
You standing [G7]there waving your goodbye's to [C]me  

Six months have gone by love I wish I were [G7]dead   
This dark dreary dungeon and stone for my [C]bed  
It's raining it's hailing the [C7]moon shows no [F]light
Now won't you [G7]tell me love why you never [C]write

I've counted the raindrops I've counted the [G7]stars
I've counted the footsteps I've counted the [C]bars
I've counted on you love [C7]to get me a [F]break
But I guess you've [G7]forgotten I'm here for your [C]sake

So come ye young fellows with hearts brave and [G7]true   
Don't trust any woman you're doomed if you [C]do  
Don't trust any woman no [C7]matter what [F]kind
For twenty one [G7]years is a mighty long [C]time

For twenty one [G7]years is a mighty long [C]time

The judge said stand up lad and dry up your tears
You're sentenced to prison for twenty one years
So dry up your tears love and kiss me goodbye
The best friends must part love so must you and I

I hear the train coming t'will be here at nine
To take me to prison to serve out my time
I look down the railway and plainly I see
You standing there waving your goodbye's to me

Six months have gone by love I wish I were dead
This dark dreary dungeon and stone for my bed
It's raining it's hailing the moon shows no light
Now won't you tell me love why you never write

I've counted the raindrops I've counted the stars
I've counted the footsteps I've counted the bars
I've counted on you love to get me a break
But I guess you've forgotten I'm here for your sake

So come ye young fellows with hearts brave and true
Don't trust any woman you're doomed if you do
Don't trust any woman no matter what kind
For twenty one years is a mighty long time

For twenty one years is a mighty long time
