"Cisco Clifton's Fillin' Station"

It's not always the land that's the hardest and bitterest

It's the man who has the hard bitter attitude

Toward his fellow man or toward the land

Such is the case that you will find in this following song

About a man's attitude toward his fellow man and toward this land

[ ac.guitar ]

I walked in the big yard to feel the warm sunshine

A ninety-nine year man stepped over to me

He offered a smoke and he said as I rolled it

Tomorrow I'm going to break out and go free

They watch us by sunlight they watch us by spotlight

But I know a way for a man to go free

Down under my cell I'm diggin' a tunnel

The walls of a prison will never hold me

[ ac.guitar ]

I told him that I'd have no part of his scheming

My time would be over one year from today

His eyes blazed with fire and he looked right through me

Bitter but broken again he did say

They watch us by sunlight...

[ ac.guitar ]

Next morning at breakfast the old man was missing

Then we all heard the rifles high up on the wall

He'd gone through the tunnel just like he had promised

And they said he was crying when they saw him fall

They watch us by sunlight...
