Leaving Out Of Atmore
Leaving Out Of Atmore
2008 JM Chitty/Bill Gaunce

I landed behind these prison walls
For something I did not do
They pinned a murder on me
Back in the Spring of ?92

I had a reputation
I?d done some time before
A half a gram in my guitar case
I guess they found what they were looking for

I?m leaving out of Atmore in the morning
Wearing the mark of the wrongly accused
I?m leaving out of Atmore in the morning
With any luck I?ll be in Mobile by noon

Your strong love helped me through
All those talks behind the glass
I swore that if I made it
I?d be coming home at last

The yellow mama did her talking
To all the dead men walking
I could have been among them
But now I?ll be sitting next to you


Somehow I got lucky
The real killer he confessed
I got my release yesterday
I?m gonna blow this place of death

A man could lose his mind
Livin? in a six by ten
The thing that kept me goin?
Was to dance with you again

I?ll fly away in freedom
And start on my new life
And waltz you to the chapel
Where I?ll make you my sweet wife
