​Prison Bound

This song is by Melvin Jackson.

If you see my little woman, while you're travelin' 'round, over town
If you see my little woman, while travelin' 'round over town
Tell there the last time you saw me, baby, I was prisoner bound

They lied [sic] my hands behind me, well, they locked me to a friend
They tied my hands behind me, well, they locked me to a friend
Tellin', my hearts was so much sorrow, I believed that was the end

Take these stripe from 'round me, and these chains from 'round my leg
Git these stripe from 'round me, and these chains from 'round my leg
Well, the stripes do not hurt me, but these chains 'bout to kill me dead

Now I am a prisoner and I don't know what to do
