Skeeter Davis — Give Me Death lyrics

I'm standing in the courtroom
The trial is for my life
The jury found me guilty
The crime is killing twice.

I found him with another
I guess he loved her best
Then in a lover's jealous rage
I shot them both to death.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/skeeter-davis-give-me-death-lyrics.html ]
Give me death, give me death
A lifetime in a prison is what they've given me
But in some lonely graveyard
Is where I'd rather be.

So judge, I beg for mercy
Please put my soul at rest
Judge please change my sentence
From life and give me death.

Give me death, give me death.
Give me death, give me death...
