Chair Lyrics

Artist: Marty Robbins
Album: Today

All night long I tried but couldn't sleep tried to be a man tried not to weep
Now I hear the turning of the key silently the guard motions to me
Now realize the end is near and I find I can't control my fear
As I pass the guard I start to cry and I whisper I don't want to die
Then from death row comes a whisper Charlie be a man
And I scream just wait till your turn then see if you can
Down the hall they push and carry me blind with fright and tears won't let me see
Through a door and then I stop and stare cause I see it there it is the chair
Then they strap me in and turn to leave and the prison chaplain says believe
Faith in God will cause him to forgive I have faith but still I want to live
Suddenly I'm paralyzed this must be the end
My body jerks and trembles as they turn it on again
Quickly as it came the pain is gone I hear music someone sings a song
Suddenly I seem to float through air something's wrong cause I'm still in the chair
In the room there's hardly any light now I see a doctor dressed in white
I hear every word it's plainly said did I hear them say this man is dead
