The heat of a summer day, poundin' down on my back
Work like a dog in the sunlight tryin' to pay the people back

I killed a man in the spring time
Had to work hard just to make a dime
To buy my baby the things that she needs

I guess I didn't think twice and now I have to pay the price
For killing a man of another creed

I guess I'll have to be strong
The rest of my life can't be too long

I know I'll die some day and be going far away
And you won't remember the things that I've done

I feel a shedding tear, it's only been a year
But I know I'll be dead when that evening comes

I guess I'll have to be strong
The rest of my life can't be too long
