Stone walls and steel bars, a love on my mind
I'm a three time loser, I'm long gone this time.

Jealousy has took my young life,
All for the love of another man's wife.
I've had it coming, I've known all the time,
No more stone walls and steel bars and you on my mind.

Gray-haired warden, deep Frisco Bay,
Guards all around me leading my way.
I've had it coming, I'm at the end of the line,
No more stone walls and steel bars and you on my mind.

Stone walls and steel bars, a love on my mind,
I'm a three time loser, I'm long gone this time.
