"Ft. Worth, Texas" as written by and John Dowd....
I was born in Ft. Worth Texas 47 years ago
I spent 27 years as a free man
I spent 20 on death row
20 on death row

I shot and killed my girlfriend
The I sat and watched her die
Then I turned the gun against myself
But my aim was a little high
My aim was a little high

I think about her all the night
I dream about her all day
There’s not a higher price
For a man like me to pay
For a man like me to pay

I won’t ask god for forgiveness
There’s still too many people I hate
But she was not one of them
And I realized that too late
I realized that too late

I won’t say that I’m lonely
Cause there’s too many voices in my head
The one I hear most frequently
Says the girl you loved is dead
The girl you loved is dead

Well, I’m gonna die tomorrow
Of course, I’m terrified
I just wish that both of us
On that faithful day I die
On that faithful day I die

Well, I was born in Ft. Worth Texas
I’m gonna die down in Tennessee
You’ll put me in a pauper’s grave
And then you’ll be rid of me
And then you’ll be rid of me
