Sad prisoner's song

I'm a prisoner alone and forgotten
I'll be here until the day I die
All because when a boy I was foolish
All because I was fast with a knife

    I'm a man that's doomed to be lonely
    I'm a man that's doomed to be sad
    I've got no name, just a number
    And I've lost all the friends that I've had

If I had my life to live over
I'd travel the narrow and straight
But I'd still be at home with my loved ones
And not behind these iron gates

  * Refrain

Young men when you have heard my story
Let it teach you the right from the wrong
And I know my life wasn't wasted
Writing this sad prosoner's song

  * Refrain
