Blue Mountain Penitentiary
Been housing sin for centuries 
I am just a number, not a name
And you wear a gun and hold the keys
But you've always been good to me
Only see the man and not the shame 
And I haven't seen my wife in years 
Last memory is her in tears  Wonder if she'll even come tonight 
There's something that she doesn't know
She needs to hear before I go
 Could you tell her I'm alright 

 Would you pray with me
 Touch the hand of a sinner  Would you stay with me
And be my guest for dinner 

 Looks like this is my dyin' day
They tell me that's the only way
I'll ever see the other side again 
But they don't know who's been in here
 Every day the last three years
Yes, sir, I'm the one who let Him in
And He comes and sits down in my chair 
Weeping, breathing this same air
And opens up His hands  Reminds me that He walked this mile
 Suffered for a little while
And made me an innocent man

 Would you pray with me
 Touch the hand of a sinner  Would you stay with me
And be my guest for dinner 

 Would you pray with me
 Touch the hand of a sinner  Would you stay with me
My last guest for dinner
