It stands like a castle,

beneath the mountain side

 Laurel and rhododendrons

grow outside it's walls

 hills and rushing streams,

and little children run about

but this scenic beauty

can't hide the horror

within those old stone walls

Murder, rape and suicide

hides behind those prison walls

It is called Brushy Mountain Penitentiary

where James Earl Ray

walked the halls

Brushy Mt. Penitentiary

Petros Tn

built 1896 , closed 2006
