Walk On The Outside Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I've been in here so long I forgot what I did wrong
Just a kid when they put me here inside
I don't have long to live and Lord, what I would give
Just to walk on the outside

Phones weren't even in, when they put me in this pin
And dad told me, he, he, planes would never fly
There's a lot I've never seen except here on this scene
Lord, give me a walk on the outside

Now Lord I'm not complainin' but I've walked
At least a million miles behind these walls
I'd just like to see what's on this other side, that's all

There's a lot I've never seen except here on this scene
Lord, give me a walk on the outside
There's a lot I've never seen except here on this scene
Lord, give me a walk on the outside
