I'm not in your town to stay said a lady old and gray
To the warden of a penitentiary
I'm not in your town to stay and I'll soon be on my way
I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
Yes warden I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
I've tried to raise my baby right I have prayed both day and night
That he'd never follow footsteps of his dad
I have searched both far and wide and I had feared that he had died
And at ast I'd find my baby here in jail
Yes warden but it's good to find my baby here in jail
[ guitar ]
I will pawn you my watch I will pawn you my chain I will pawn you my diamond ring
I will wash all your clothes I will scrub all your floors
If that will get my baby out of jail
Yes warden you know I want my darling out of jail
Then we heard the warden say to this lady old and gray
I will bring your baby boy to your side
Two iron gates swung wide apart she held her darlin' to her heart
She kissed her baby boy then she died
But smiling in the arms of her dear boy there she died
In the arms of her dear boy there she died
