Chris Stapleton - Death Row Lyrics

Little piece of window sitting way up high
I can't look up enough to see the sky
There ain't no good light here below
Death Row
Death Row

Don't want no preacher man to come around
I don't need him to lay my burden down
Already told Jesus everything I know
Death Row
Death Row

When it's time for my last request
Tell my mama that I did my best
Tell my baby that I love her so
Death Row
Death Row
Death Row
Death Row

Got a calendar up on my wall
Marking days till I get the call
Till it's time for me to go
Death Row
Death Row
Death Row

Chris Stapleton Death Row Comments
  1. Duck Dodgers

    you can hear the blues and jazz influences as well as the southern gospel/rock, his voice masters any genre he wants to sing, truly a once in lifetime singer/songwriter. He bridges the gap in music between certain cultural and racial differences that mainline Nashville has long ignored. Chris is a sponge of life experiences,alcohol-laced hard times and love lost, this is the essence of blues itself ,we are very blessed to be alive to hear this man sing

  2. Alphabet Man

    Well, up here's the window sitting way up high
    I can't look up enough to see the sky
    There ain't no good light here below
    Death Row
    Death Row

    Don't want no preacher man to come around
    I don't need him to lay my burden down
    Already told Jesus everything I know
    Death Row
    Death Row

    When it's time for my last request
    Tell my mama that I did my best
    Tell my baby that I love her so
    Death Row
    Death Row
    Death Row
    Death Row

    Got a calendar on my wall
    Marking days 'til I get the call
    'Til it's time for me to go
    Death Row
    Death Row
    Death Row

  28. jay Faulk

    Stapleton kills this

  29. Bossnium

    From someone who has struggled with suicide, these are close to the same words I have said. Only difference is, I was committing myself, and not the state . For anyone who has been in that state of mind, you say goodbye to the ones who will be largely impacted by you being gone, so be it 1 or many. You say goodbye, mentally or physically. Amazing song, deep and you can hear his feeling. Im glad it was vocalized this way, everything about this song bleeds heart.

  30. VENON2775

  58. Jari Halonen

    Chris Stapleton is a smooth mix of country, southern rock and blues. It works in an amazing way. I can imagine a band like Cream performing this song without a problem. I can't wait for Chris to head back to studio for some more greatness. In the meantime, I'll have a glass of good scotch and listen to his albums on a repeat.
