Hot Huntsville Morn'

Posted to Poetry




Gary Graham, Gray Graham,
just another poor black man-
got himself in the middle of a jam,
poor ol lonesome Gary Graham

picked him up on the side of the road
never listened to the story he told
dont even see the picture he showed
picked him up on the side of the road

spent his days rottin away
lonesome nights-even more lonesome days
aint nothin change when youre away
spending your days rottin away

the sun dont shine in the texas death house
not for a man, not for a mouse
dont even matter-the attention you arouse
cause the sun dont shine in the texas death house

please mr. governor, listen to my tale
i wasnt even around when he got killed
youre aholdin me-against my will
and you wont even listen to the story i tell

Gary Graham got the lethal I.V.
regardless of all the pleas
aint no such thing as an innocent man whos free
when Gary Graham gets the lethal I.V.
