"I've Gotta Get A Message To You" as written by Maurice Ernest Gibb, Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
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

I've just go to get a message to you, hold on, hold on
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on

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

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
Hold on
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on
I've just got to get a message to her, hold on, hold on

    General CommentThe song is about a man sentenced to death for(understandebly)killing the lover of his wife. Even so, he thinks it's only fair that he recieves this punishment for his crime.

    It's strange that in some parts of the USA, you may legaly shoot down any
    stranger that enters your back yard, but not the guy that bones your wife.

    Beats me!

    I don't understand, with all the fuss (MPAA, privacy, DMCA, terrorism, FBI), ppl still say USA is the greatest and country of freedom.
