Conway Twitty — Papa Sing Me A Song lyrics

Every son wants to follow in the footsteps of his dad
That's why my boy is in this cell next to me
Tonight I'll sing him a song about mama and home
For tomorrow he'll meet his destiny.

So, I'll sing him a song about mama and home
It's all that's kept him from losing his mind
I'll sing him a song about mama and home
But tonight I'll sing my last time.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-papa-sing-me-a-song-lyrics.html ]
(In the morning at sunrise they're gonna take my boy out to hang
And the scaffold and thirteen steps they built near by my door
But I know that when the warden leads him past my cell
Yes he's gonna say papa sing me a song once more)

Papa sing me a song about mama and home
It's all that's kept me from losing my mind
Papa sing him a song about mama and home
But sing a song to die by this time.

Papa sing a song to die by this time...
