In The Gravel Yard

G           G7           C

In the gravel yard, with a number for my name

G           D           G

Making little rocks out of big rocks all day

G           G7           C

Oh, the work is mighty hard in the gravel yard

G           D           G

I’ll never be a free man, so they say


Warden hear my plea, listen now to me

I killed a man that I caught with my wife

You’d probably done the same, so I am not to blame

Sentenced to the rest of my life


Chorus


In the driven rain with a ball and chain

My hammer rings a low mournful sound

It sings a little song for the ones who done me wrong

Who lie beneath the cold, cold ground


Chorus
