"Four Walls" is a country song written in 1957 by Marvin Moore and George Campbell.

Jim Reeves’ version of the song went to number 1 in 1957 on the Country music chart and number 12 on the Pop chart.[2] The vocal backing on this Jim Reeves recording is by the vocal group The Jordanaires.

The song has been recorded by other artists, including B. J. Thomas, Bing Crosby, Willie Nelson, and Jerry Lee Lewis.[3] Ronnie Milsap recorded a version for a tribute album to Reeves in 1981, featuring ten songs previously made hits by Reeves both before and after his death. Milsap’s album title was derived from the opening line of "Four Walls," "Out where the bright lights are glowing."
