Shot Full of Holes Jason Boland & The Stragglers



Hes twenty [Am/B]one and jealous of the shadow outside the fence

Got a bible from his cellmate he’s seachin’ for a 2nd chance

Hopes than [Am/B]he can make it outside before his little girl learns to talk

Hopes he can get it all figured out’ before the judge says that he can walk


Cause it’s hotwired, too tired from bein’ who he’s been

Car theft, what’s left he ain’t ever goin’ back again

He ain’t never [C/B]goin’ back to tie hi[C/B]mself to the whippin’ pole

His American dream’s like the county line sign that he shot full of holes

And 2-4 don’t seem like much till you’re stuck in an 8X10

He felt guilty damn near all his life and much more now than then

He wrote a letter to Jesus last night and he nailed it up to the cross

Yeah he’s free in his heart but at night in the dark, you know the man

he’s still the boss


He walked through the gate last Thursday and headed on into town

What did he see but a Cadillac there with all it’s windows down

Chorus 2:

And it’s broke down, hands bound,and it’s back to who he was

No change it seems strange, it ain’t ever been push or shove

And now he’s goin’ back to tie himself to the whippin’ pole

And his American dream the county sign that he shot full of holes
