Going to Federal Prison is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats. It was written for Tallahassee; however, it was not finished, and did not make the final cut. Only the chorus is known.


One magic night you come to me [the rest of a long opening line]
You couldn't pick my face out of a lineup
I know you though

I grab hold of your hand
Bring it up to my mouth
We're gonna run out of land
We're gonna run out of land
If we keep heading south
