I've Gotta Get A Message To You lyrics

The preacher talked to me and he smiled.
Said, 'Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.
Now for once in your life you're alone,
but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone.'

I've just gotta get a message to you,
hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through,
hold on, hold on.

I told him I'm in no hurry,
but if I broke her heart, then won't you tell her I'm sorry.
And for once in my life I'm alone,
and I've got to let her know
just in time before I go.

I've just gotta get a message to you,
hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through,
hold on, hold on.

Well I laughed but that didn't hurt,
and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirk.
Now I'm crying but deep down inside,
well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.

I've just gotta get a message to you,
hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through,
hold on, hold on.

I've just gotta get a message to you,
hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through,
hold on, hold on.
