Clemency (by Steve Key ©2007)
--for Stanley "Tookie" Williams

Tomorrow morning I will know
If I live for one more day
Or if it’s now my time to die
Tonight the governor holds my fate

CH
Hear my plea – clemency
I’m not asking you to set me free
God have mercy on you and me
Hear my plea -- clemency

Innocence I do not claim
I led the gangs back in my prime
But these four lives I did not take
I swear I did not do this crime (to CH)

Little babies yet unborn
They are precious in our sight
But those who we condemn
Don't they have a right to life?

Hear my plea – clemency
I’m not asking you to set me free
God have mercy on you and me
Hear my plea -- clemency
