My Gift - 2001

My Gift
(c) 2001

I don't have a TV
nor a radio
I just read my Bible
so time won't go too slow

I don't need to talk too much
sittin' in this hole
not too many criminals
I really want to know

But I have my bible
it's all I want or need
to get me through this test
my father gave to me

I have a convict cellmate
he's a Christian too
we talk all about the Lord
and read together too

I sit here drinkin' coffee
smoke more tobbacco than I should
and when the words come to me
I put them down and hope they're good

God has surely given me
a gift I can't deny
to put my words on paper
a reason not to die
