It’s already number three in our top 10 prison songs.
Today a short story on a Nick Cave song about prison.

It was recorded while lead singer Nick Cave was in the midst of a heroin addiction, the song describes the

conviction and impending electrocution of an prisoner who may or may not be innocent of his crimes. The inspiring poetry of the lyrics and simple melody of the refrain makes this song a great example of prison blues.
