The preacher talked to me and he smiled
Said: come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile
Now for once in your life you're alone
But you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone.
I've just got to get a message to you: hold on, hold on!
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on!
I told him I'm in no hurry
But if I broke her heart, won't you tell her I'm sorry
And for once in my life I'm alone
And I've got to let her know just in time before I go:
Well I laughed but that didn't hurt
And it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirt
Now I'm crying but deep down inside,
well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.
