        G   C   D   A   G   C   G


Verse 1

       G                           C
It was Christmas in prison and the food was real good
       G                                D
We had turkey and pistols carved out of wood
      G                         C
And I dream of her always ,even when I don't dream
    G                          D            G
Her names on my tongue and her bloods in my stream


Chorus

D           C     G
Wait awhile eternity 
C                       G          D
old Mother Nature's got nothing on me
G 
Come to me ,run to me
C
Come to me now
      G
We're rolling my sweetheart 
      D          G
We're flowing by god


(Repeat intro) G   C   D   E   A

               G   C   D   A   G   C   G


Verse 2

    G                               C
She reminds me of a chess game with someone I admire
     G                                  D
Or a picnic in the rain after a prairie fire
    G                       C
Her heart is as big as this whole goddamn jail
        G                           D          G
And she sweeter than saccharin at a drug store sale


Chorus

D           C     G
Wait awhile eternity 
C                       G          D
Old Mother Nature's got nothing on me
G
Come to me , run to me 
C
Come to me now
      G 
We're rolling my sweetheart 
      D          G
We're flowing by god


(repeat intro) G   C   D   E   A

               G   C   D   A   G   C   G


Verse 3

    G                                   C
The search light in the big yard swings round with the gun
        G                                                 D
And the spotlights in the snowflakes,like the dust in the sun
     G                                C
It's Christmas in prison, there'll be music tonight
     G                         D            G
I'll probably get homesick , I love you goodnight 


Chorus

D           C     G
Wait awhile eternity 
C                       G          D
Old Mother Nature's got nothing on me
G
Come to me,run to me
C
Come to me now
      G 
We're rolling my sweetheart 
      D          G
We're flowing by god
