    Have Mercy on the Criminal

    [Verse 1]
    Have you heard the dogs at night
    Somewhere on the hill
    Chasing some poor criminal
    And I guess they're out to kill
    Oh there must be shackles on his feet
    And mother in his eyes
    Stumbling through the devil-dark
    With the hound pack in full cry

    [Chorus]
    Have mercy on the criminal
    Who is running from the law
    Are you blind to the winds of change?
    Don't you hear him any more?
    Praying "Lord, you gotta help me
    I am never gonna sin again
    Just take these chains from around my legs
    Sweet Jesus, I'll be your friend"

    [Verse 2]
    Now have you ever seen the white teeth gleam
    While you lie on a cold damp ground
    You're taking in the face of a rifle butt
    While the wardens hold you down
    And you've never seen a friend in years
    Oh, it turns your heart to stone
    You jump the walls and the dogs run free
    And the grave's gonna be your home

    [Chorus]
    Oh, have mercy on the criminal
    Who is running from the law
    Are you blind to the winds of change?
    Don't you hear him any more?
    Praying "Lord, you gotta help me
    I am never gonna sin again
    Just take these chains from around my legs
    Ooh, sweet Jesus, I'll be your friend"

    [Chorus]
    Oh, have mercy on the criminal
    Who is running from the law
    Are you blind to the winds of change?
    Don't you hear him any more?
    Praying "Lord, you gotta help me
    I am never gonna sin again
    Just take these chains from around my legs
    Sweet Jesus, I'll be your friend"
