Johnny Cash - Cisco Clifton's Filling Station lyrics

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 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 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... 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...
