Them are the Breaks


By now they've gone through with it. I wanted you to know now that the truth now that I'm gone. Before anyone else knows, if they ever do. The truth is that I did it. Everything they said I did and some things they never found out about. There's another guy in here on the next block who's serving his time for something I done. Them are the breaks, I guess.

I never owned up to it before because I'd never have been able to face you the way I had to, and I know it would have been harde even harder for me in here. Not that I don't deserve it, it just that when they decide to kill a man for something he won't admit to, they kill him different than they would otherwise.

I'm sorry. If anyone ever says I never said it show him this.
