The judge found me guilty, the clerk he wrote it down (x 2)
Just a poor gal in trouble, I know I'm county road bound

Many days of sorrow, many nights of woe (x 2)
And a ball and chain everywhere I go

Chains on my feet, padlock on my hand (x 2)
It's all on account of stealing a woman's man

It was early this morning that I had my trial (x 2)
Ninety days on the county road, and judge didn't even smile.
