County Jail

This song is by Alexis Korner and appears on the compilation album Kornerstoned (2006).

This song is a cover of "County Jail Blues" by Big Maceo.
They picked me up and put me in the county jail
They picked me up, put me in the county jail
Wouldn't even let my baby come and post my bail

Now I'm in prison and I've almost did my time
Now I'm in prison, but I've almost did my time
They gave me six months, but I had to work out nine

I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout
I know my baby, she gonna jump and shout
When that train pulls up and I come walking out

Take these stripes from around me, chain away from around my legs
Take these stripes from around me, chain away from around my legs
The stripes can't hurt me, chain could a-kill me dead
