      Steve Earle - Billy Austin Música y Letra

      My name is Billy Austin 
      I'm Twenty-Nine years old 
      I was born in Oklahoma 
      Quarter Cherokee I'm told 
      Don't remember Oklahoma 
      Been so long since I left home 
      Seems like I've always been in prison 
      Like I've always been alone 
      Didn't mean to hurt nobody 
      Never thought I'd cross that line 
      I held up a filling station 
      Like I'd done a hundred times 
      The kid done like I told him 
      He lay face down on the floor 
      guess I'll never know what made me 
      Turn and walk back through that door 
      The shot rang out like thunder 
      My ears rang like a bell 
      No one came runnin' 
      So I called the cops myself 
      Took their time to get there 
      And I guess I could'a run 
      I knew I should be feeling something 
      But I never shed tear one 
      I didn't even make the papers 
      'Cause I only killed one man 
      but my trial was over quickly 
      And then the long hard wait began 
      Court appointed lawyer 
      Couldn't look me in the eye 
      He just stood up and closed his briefcase 
      When they sentenced me to die 
      Now my waitin's over 
      As the final hour drags by 
      I ain't about to tell you 
      That I don't deserve to die 
      But there's twenty-seven men here 
      Mostly black, brown and poor 
      Most of em are guilty 
      Who are you to say for sure? 
      So when the preacher comes to get me 
      And they shave off all my hair 
      Could you take that long walk with me 
      Knowing hell is waitin' there 
      Could you pull that switch yourself sir 
      With a sure and steady hand 
      Could you still tell youself 
      That you're better than I am 
      My name is Billy Austin 
      I'm twenty-nine years old 
      I was born in Oklahoma 
      Quarter Cherokee I'm told
