Written by Aubrey Mayhew
[C]Oh momma I'[F]m so thankful yo[C]u came
It’s late and I hate about thi[G7]s rain
I [F]know it’s hard on you bu[C]t I don’t know what [F]I’d do
If you weren'[C]t here momma t[G7]o walk me to th[C]e train
21 miles to [F]Lake Charles [C]Prison
A few more hours my life will cease to [G7]be
But I won'[C]t mind that last mile I€[F]™ll walk it with a smile
As [C]long as your sweet face is the [F]last thing [G7]that I [C]see
Oh how I wish I could [F]turn back the pages of [C]time
And rewrite those few minutes I went in[G7]sane
Yes [F]I took her for my wife [C]and was forced to take her [F]life
Now in [C]chains I ride the [G7]Lake Charles Prison [C]train
21 miles to [F]Lake Charles [C]Prison
13 men wearing balls and [G7]chains
But [C]I’m richer by far than all o[F]f them together are
All [C]because momma you [G7]walked me to the [C]train[/chordpress]

He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
