San Quentin

Johnny Cash / Johnny Cash at San Quentin (1967)

An' - I was thinkin' about you guys yesterday.
Now, I been here three times before, an' I think I understand a little
about how you feel about some things.
It's none of my business how you feel about some other things
I don't give a damn how you feel about some other things!
But anyway, I tried to put myself in your place,
and I believe this is the way that I would feel about San Quentin.
San Quentin, you've been livin' hell to me
You've hosted me since nineteen sixty three
I've seen 'em come and go and I've seen them die
And long ago I stopped askin' why!
San Quentin, I hate ev'ry inch of you. 
You've cut me and you scarred me thru an' thru. 
And I'll walk out a wiser weaker man; 
Mister Congressman you can't understand. 
"San Quentin! San Quentin"
San Quentin, what good do you think you do? 
Do you think I'll be different when you're through? 
You bent my heart and mind and you work my soul, 
And your stone walls turn my blood a little cold. 
San Quentin, may you rot and burn in hell. 
May your walls fall and may I live to tell. 
May all the world forget you ever stood. 
And may all the world regret you did no good. 
San Quentin, I hate ev'ry edge of you!
