Big Rock Jail

This song is by Ed Bell and appears on the compilation album Ed Bell "Mamlish Blues" (1927-1930) (1992).

Say, high sheriff been here, got my girl and gone
Say, high sheriff been here, got my girl and gone
I said, left me lonely, sheriff, I'm all alone

Oh, listen, mister, what have my baby done?
Oh, listen, mister, what have my baby done?
I just want to know, has she done anybody wrong

You took her on down to that Big Rock Jail
You took her on down to that Big Rock Jail
And her crime was so evil, nobody would go her bail

Now, tell me, who took your gun and made her raise her hand
You took your gun, made her raise her hand
And you were wrong, 'cause she ain't never harmed a man

My babe in jail and I can't get no news
I said, my babe in jail, and I can't get no news
I don't get nothin' but these mean old high sheriff blues
