Throw Away The Key (Edited)

Written by Sonya Dauth
VERSE 1
Some say marriage is a prison
Life sentenced no way out
She'll wear you down with her tears and
Neverending nagging no doubt
With her constant need to talk it out
It's hell on Earth and hurts ya brain
Babe I'm no wannabe Jesse James
But lock me up with that ball 'n chain

CHORUS
I'll take you as my inmate
For a life sentence or three
If this is my prison cell
Honey throw away the key

VERSE 2
You're the Sheriff to our jailhouse
The link in our chain gang
The Lone Ranger to my Tonto
The dynamite to my bang
The sweetest soul I've ever known
Got me down here on my knees
Your arms are my sweet holding cell
And Warden you hold all the keys

CHORUS
I'll take you as my inmate
For a life sentence with me
If this is our prison cell
Honey throw away the key

I'll take you as my inmate
For a life sentence or three
If this is my prison cell
Honey throw away the key
