Canyon Country, CA
One on a cot behind steel bars
and one in thr grass under the stars.
A couple apart by a crime of mistake
trembling with fear while in each heart there's ache.
This desperate man, unjustly accused
leaves her all alone, nowhere amused.
During the night he's taken away
leaving her behind right where she lay.
Six weeks pass, the moment has come
will he be jailed or free will he run?
The time is now, seconds of doom
Everyone's seated in the old courtroom.
Tension is high, no dry palms in the place
except for the judge with an expressionless face.
The decision is read, eyes are all lit-
sentenced for life, for a crime he did not commit!
