Bet it ain't raining back home
Bet you sister's still on the phone
Bet Momma's in the kitchen, cooking fried chicken
Wishing that I hadn't done wrong

Momma, don't you worry about it none though
Every thing's gonna be alright, Momma
They're teaching us
A lot of new things in here, Momma

Things like there ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

Papa's reading yesterday's mail
Wishing that the hay was all bailed
I bet he's wishing he could go fishing
And here I am a lazing in jail

Well, Papa, don't you worry about it none
Now, every thing's gonna be alright, Papa
They're teaching us a lesson today
We're learning pretty well too

We've already learned a whole lot of stuff already
Things like there ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

There ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

There ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang

There ain't no good in an evil hearted woman
And I ain't cut out to be no Jesse James
And you don't go writing hot checks down in Mississippi
And there ain't no good chain gang
