There’s a prison on route 41 
           A                         E 
Home to my father, first cousin, and son 
      A               D 
And I visit every weekend 
            A             E              A 
Not with my body but with prayers that I send 


A                          D 
I’ve a reason for my absentee 
                A                   E 
And no lack of love for my dear family 
        A                       D 
But my savior is not Christ the Lord 
                 A              E           A 
But one named Virginia whom I live my life for 


E                       A 
And if I don’t mind to her 
     D           A            E 
I’d rot in that prison for sure 
		      A		 
Yeah, she’d toss me aside 
          D      A      E 
And I’d surely wait to die 


      A                D 
By decree, law, or demand 
              A                         E 
So unlike my uncle, grandpa, and great aunt 
          A                     D 
Whom I’d most likely see every day 
                 A                 E       A 
If not for the righteous grand Virginia’s way 



A                          D 
There’s a prison on route 41 
            A                        E 
Home to my mother, stepbrother, and son 
          A                       D 
And I’d tear down that jail by myself 
               A              E           A 
If not for Virginia who made me somebody else 


E                A	 
And I owe it to her 
     D            A         E 
I’d rot in that prison for sure 
                      A 
Yeah, she’d toss me aside 
     D           A      E 
And show me the way to die 

         A                  D 
By the precepts of her purity 
               A                     E 
So unlike the habits of my whole family 
        A                  D 
Whom I only see down on my knees 
                 A             E           A 
In prayer by Virginia whom I live for to please
