They pick me out and put me in the county jail
They pick me out and put me in the county jail
They wouldn't even let my woman come and go my bail

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

'Cause I know my baby - she's gonna jump and shout
I know my baby - she's gonna jump and shout
When that train roll up and I come walking out

Now play 'em, Mister Tampa
So take these stripes from around me, chains from around my neck
These stripes from around me, and these chains from around my neck
Well, these stripes don't hurt me, but these chains oughta give me death
