He was taken to the station with a ball and chain, And they put poor Sidney on the evening train.
7    They arrived at his house about eleven forty-one, To see his little daughter and his two little sons. They all shook hands and knelt down to pray, "O Lord, don't take our dear papa away."
8    Then the people all gathered from far and near To see poor Sidney sent to the electric chair, But at last with surprise the judge he said, "He is going to the penitentiary instead."
