I've been unable to find the chords for Walls of a Prison. Marty Stewart recorded it and it was written by, I believe, Johnny Cash. Can anyone help me?

sparky, That site works if you have an mp3 to upload. Then it automatically works chords out. It does a fairly good job with most chords but does also give wrong chords from time-to-time. It should only be used as a guide.

Thanks sparky. I'll do the chords up for Byland.
It follows the tune to Streets of Laredo.

This is sort of how I hear the song.

The Walls Of A Prison – Johnny Cash

[A]/ [D]/// [A]/// [D]/// [A]///
[D]/// [Em]/// [D]// [A]/ [D]/

[D] I walked in the [A] big yard to [D] feel the warm [A] sunshine
A [D] ninety-nine [G] year man stepped [D] over to [A] me
He [D] offered a [A] smoke and he [D] said as I [A] rolled it
To-[D]-morrow I’m [Em] going to break [D] out and [A] go [D] free

They watch us by sunlight, they [G] watch us by spotlight
But [D] I know a way for a [E] man to go [A] free
Down [D] under my cell I’m [G] diggin’ a tunnel
The [D] walls of a prison will [A] never hold [D] me /// ///

[D]/// [A]/// [D]/// [A]/// [D]/// [Em]/// [D]// [A]/ [D]/// //

I told him that [A] I’d have no [D] part of his [A] scheming
My [D] time would be [G] over one [D] year from to-[A]-day
His [D] eyes blazed with [A] fire and [D] he looked right [A] through me
[D] Bitter but [Em] broken a-[D]-gain he [A] did [D] say

They watch us by sunlight, they [G] watch us by spotlight
But [D] I know a way for a [E] man to go [A] free
Down [D] under my cell I’m [G] diggin’ a tunnel
The [D] walls of a prison will [A] never hold [D] me /// ///

[D]/// [A]/// [D]/// [A]/// [D]/// [Em]/// [D]// [A]/ [D]/// //

Next morning at [A] breakfast the [D] old man was [A] missing
And [D] we all heard the [G] rifles high [D] up on the [A] wall
He had [D] gone through the [A] tunnel just [D] like he had [A] promised
And they [D] said he was [Em] cryin’ when [D] they saw [A] him [D] fall

They watch us by sunlight, they [G] watch us by spotlight
But [D] I know a way for a [E] man to go [A] free
Down [D] under my cell I’m [G] diggin’ a tunnel
The [D] walls of a prison will [A] never hold [D] me /// ///

[D]/// [Em]/// [D]// [A]/ [D]/
