      About "Prisoners"

      Lyrics for John Denver - "Prisoners"

      Josie works the counter at the downtown five and dime
      Anything at all to help her pass the time
      Her mama keeps the baby and grandpa rambles on
      About the good times playing in his mind

      It's a hard life living when you're lonely
      It's a long night sleeping alone
      It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
      It's a long, long way home

      Josie spends the evening with the people in the pages
      Of the paperback she picked up in the store
      Or sometimes it's the TV or she'll try to write a letter
      But they don't come too often anymore

      It's a hard life living when you're lonely
      It's a long night sleeping alone
      It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
      It's a long, long way home

      And I stare at the gray walls before me
      And I see her face in the stone
      And I try to imagine our baby
      And I wish they would let me go home
      And I wish they would let me go home
      And I wish they would let me go home

      It's a hard life living when you're lonely
      And I wish they would let me go home
      It's a long night sleeping alone
      And I wish they would let me go home
      It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
      And I wish they would let me go home
      It's a long, long way home
      And I wish they would let me go home
      It's a long, long way home
      And I wish they would let me go home
      Bring me and the other boys home
      And I wish they would let me go home
      Bring me and the other boys home
      And I wish they would let me go home
      Bring me and the other boys home
