I'm standing in the courtroom
The trial is for my life
The jury found me guilty
The crime is killing twice

I found him with another
I guess he loved her best
Found in a lover's jealous rage
I shot them both to death

Give me death
Give me death

A lifetime in a prison
Is what they've given me
But in some lonely graveyard
Is where I'd rather be

So judge I beg for mercy
Please put my soul at rest
Judge please change my sentence
From life and give me death

Give me death
Give me death
Give me death
Give me death
