Lyrics:Eight to ten years for possession,
I'm living at the state hotel.
I guess I
learned my lesson.
I guess I learned it well.

The judge says, "I got no
discretion.
The law upon that point is clear.
Either got to put you up at state
expense
Or let you walk away from here.

"I see you got a prior
conviction.
That just about ties my hands.
They took away my power of
decision.
I've got to honor what the law commands.

"You were indicted for
conspiracy
to obstruct the right of way."
The plea was civil liberty,
But
it wasn't a judge that day.

chorus
Possession, nine points of the law they
say
Possession, take that boy and salt him away.
Possession, teach him how to
obey.
They'd rather let a killer walk the street,
Than another damn freak like
me.

Got a wife and kid on the way.
I've never had a nose for crime.

Someone passed me a joint one day,
And now I'm doing federal time.

Got a
letter from wife that read,
"I just met another man.
It ain't that I don't love
you, it said.
"I hope you understand."

Guess my luck ain't all that
bad,
Smiling through my tears.
Seems that the D.A. knew my dad
Or I might
have got 20 years.

Killer comes and a killer walks,
While I sit rotting
here.
The scene of the crime is the ballot box,
And people who vote from
fear.

chorus

2nd chorus
Possession, nine points of the law
they say
Possession, take that boy and lock him away
Possession, I've come to
understand
They'd rather free a man with some blood on his hands,
Than another
damn freak like me
