Greystone Chapel Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

Inside the walls of prison my body may be
But my Lord has set my soul free
There's a Greystone chapel here at Folsom
A house of worship in this den of sin

You wouldn't think that God had a place here at Folsom
But he saved the souls of many lost men
Now there's Greystone chapel here at Folsom
Stands a hundred years, all made of granite rock

It takes a ring of keys to move here at Folsom
But the door to the House of God is never locked
Inside the walls of prison my body may be
But my Lord has set my soul free

There are men here that don't ever worship
There are men here who scoff at the ones who pray
But I've got down on my knees in that Greystone chapel
And I thank the Lord for helpin' me each day

Now there's Greystone chapel here at Folsom
It has a touch of God's hand on every stone
It's a flower of light in a field of darkness
And it's givin' me the strength to carry on

Inside the walls of prison my body may be
But my Lord has set my soul free
