They're buildin'the gallows outside my cell
I got 25 minutes to go

And in 25 minutes I'll be in Hell
I got 24 minutes to go

Well, they give me some beans for my last meal
23 Minutes to go

And you know... nobody asked me how I feel
I got 22 minutes to go

So, I wrote to the Gov'nor... the whole damned bunch
Ahhh... 21 minutes to go

And I call up the Mayor, and he's out to lunch

I got 20 more minutes to go

Well, the Sheriff says, "Boy, I wanna watch you die"
19 Minutes to go

I laugh in his face... and I spit in his eye
I got 18 minutes to go

Well... I call out to the Warden to hear my plea
17 Minute to go

He says, "Call me back in a week or three
You've got 16 minutes to go."

Well, my lawyer says he's sorry he missed my case
Mmmm... 15 minutes to go

Yeah, well if you're so sorry, come up and take my place
I got 14 minutes to go

Well, now here comes the padre to save my soul
With 13 minutes to go

And he's talkin'about burnin', but I'm so damned cold
I got 12 more minutes to go

Now they're testin'the trap. It chills my spine
I got 11 minutes to go

'Cuz the goddamned thing it works just fine
I got 10 more minutes to go

I'm waitin'for the pardon... gonna set me free
With 9 more minutes to go

But this ain't the movies, so to hell with me
I got 8 more minutes to go

And now I'm climbin up the ladder with a scaffold peg
With 7 more minutes to go

I've betta'watch my step or else I'll break my leg
I got 6 more minutes to go

Yeah... with my feet on the trap and my head in the noose...
5 More minutes to go

Well, c'mon somethin'and cut me loose
I got 4 more minutes to go

I can see the mountains. I see the sky
3 More minutes to go

And it's too damned pretty for a man to die
I got 2 more minutes to go

I can hear the buzzards... hear the crows
1 More minute to go

And now I'm swingin'and here I gooooooooo...
