DEAD MAN WALKIN'

[Spoken intro:] Thank you. Whoa! Thanks. We got a few uh, a few guests with us tonight in the hall, and we've got folks who've been with us a part of the week called New York Cares. They're a volunteer service organization and they mobilize 2000 volunteers each month to work on projects in schools and social service agencies, they feed the hungry, tutor children, and assist people living with Aids, they help the homeless families, it's called New York Cares, a volunteer service organization here in New York City and they deserve your support. They'll be out there in the hall tonight, please stop by and check 'em out and help 'em out if you can. We also have with us tonight some folks from New York Against The Death Penalty. ??? death penalty moratorium. As you know, there's a national ??? for moratorium on the death penalty, and whatever your feelings are about this issue, you can go out to the hall tonight and there's some folks that'll give you some information or you can sign your name on the petition for a moratorium against the death penalty and let your voice be heard. Thank you.

There's a pale horse comin'
And I'm gonna ride it
I'll rise in the morning
My fate decided it
I'm a dead man walkin'
I'm a dead man walkin'

In Saint James Parish
I was born and Christened
I've got my story
Mister, ain't no need for you to listen
It's just a dead man talkin'

Once I had a job, I had a girl
But between our dreams and actions lies this world

Hey in the deep forest
The blood and tears rushed over me
All I could feel was the drugs and the shotgun
And my fear up inside me
Like a dead man talkin'

'Neath the summer sky my eyes went black
Sister I won't ask for forgiveness, my sins are all I have

Now the clouds above my prison
They move slowly 'cross the sky
There's a new day comin'
My dreams are full tonight
