There's a pale horse comin'
And I'm gonna ride it
I'll rise in the mornin'
My fate Decided
I'm a dead man walkin'
I'm a dead man walkin'
 
In St.James Parish
I was born and christened
I've got my story
Mister ain't no need for you to listen
It's just a dead man talkin'
 
Once I had a job, I had a girl
Between our dreams and actions lies this world
 
In the deep forest
Their blood and tears rushed over me
All I could feel was the drugs and the shotgun
And my fear up inside me
I'm a dead man talkin'
 
Neath the summer sky, my eyes went black
Sister I won't ask for forgiveness
My sins are all I have
 
Now the clouds above my prison
Move slowly across the sky
Theres a new day comin'
And my dreams are full tonight.
