That's my baby's breath that you hold
That's my baby's breath that done told you a lie
Didn't you know he's still mine?

That's my mama's words that you spoke
That's my mama's wisdom you quote, when she said,
"Don't let anyone take what you own."

That's my daddy's gun at your throat
That's my daddy's thoughts that I wrote down for you:
"Don't let God get in the way of an evil man's demise."

Now I'm leaving the penitentiary
Served my twenty years to life, now I'm free,
Free to visit you again and spit upon your grave.

That's your baby's breath that I hold
That's your baby's breath that's grown up, and old,
Never knowing who her daddy was.
