"Dead Man Walking"

Written by Florida Death Row inmate Ronald W. Clark

February 1, 1999

"Dead Man Walking"
Dead man walking
That's why I'm talking
Trying to educate
To eliminate the hate
And rid so many men
Of a terrible fate.
Killing our citizens
Watching them die
This is what I'm here to testify.
Yet this here I won't deny
Some should never ever be free
But the death penalty should not be
For mistakes can be made
And the ultimate price paid
For when an innocent life is lost
That is surely the ultimate cost
And we can never, ever be sure
If we're killing the guilty - or just the poor.
