Christmas in Prison (Live)

your   season episode    i don t love you anymore

John Prine wrote this beautifully contemplative song, for his album A John Prine Christmas, about a prisoner reflecting on his life during the festive season. Asked about the lyrics, Prine told the Telegraph: 'It's about a person being in a situation they didn't want to be in but I used all the imagery as if it were a prison. And being a sentimental guy, I put it at Christmas. We urge you to turn off your ad blocker for The Telegraph website so that you can continue to access our quality content in the future.

But Prine , while never relinquishing his wry sense of humor, had mellowed quite a bit since writing about getting kicked off of Noah's ark in "Sweet Revenge. The first two songs are originals and are probably the best songs on the album, with Prine once again offering his observations on relationships gone sour. The first, though, surprisingly relates that even though the narrator's girl dumped him a year ago on Christmas, he's learned to go on with his life. The bitterness, however, creeps back in to "All the Best. He also includes a new version of "Christmas in Prison," a solid song from his third album, Sweet Revenge.

John Prine is an American treasure. The Mark Twain of Rock and Roll. And yes I am with you on the age thing. In fact the track "Dear Abby" on the same album was recorded at that show. So I have a long history with "Christmas in Prison" and was pleasantly surprised to see it emerge as a Christmas classic many, many years later.

It was Christmas in prison and the food was real good We had turkey and pistols carved out of wood And I dream of her always even when I don't dream Her name's on my toung, her blood's in my stream Chorus Wait awhile, eternity Ole Mother Nature's got nothing on me Come to me, run to me, come to me now We're rolling my sweetheart, we're flowing by God!
