Darkness falls across the land

I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time.

He kill them with their love. With their love for each other. That's how it is, every day, all over the world.
People hurt the ones they love. That's how it is all around the world.

Don't worry, John Coffey. There's love in the world too. It just shows up in the most unexpected places.
