On a Monday

This song is by Eric Bibb and appears on the Live album Lead Belly's Gold (2015).

Last Monday, I was arrested
On a Tuesday, locked up in jail
On a Wednesday, my trial was at tested
On a Thursday, nobody would go my bail

Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
And I ain't gonna see them pretty girls no more

Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulder
Take these chains, these chains from around my legs
Lord, these stripes, it sure don't worry me
But these chains, these chain's gonna kill me dead

Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
And I ain't gonna see them pretty girls no more

On Saturday, me and my baby went a-walking
On a Sunday, she locked me outa the doors
On a Monday, we were sitting down a-talking
On a Tueday, she pawned all of my clothes

Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done
And I ain't gonna see them pretty girls no more
