I Got Stripes Lyrics

(Johnny Cash - Charlie Williams)
© '59 House Of Cash, BMI / Unichappell Music, BMI

On a Monday I was arrested (uh huh)
On a Tuesday they locked me in the jail (po' boy)
On a Wednesday my trial was attested
On a Thursday they said guilty and the judge's gavel fell

I got stripes stripes around my shoulders
I got chains chains around my feet
I got stripes stripes around my shoulders
And them chains them chains they're about to drag me down

On a Monday my mama come to see me
On a Tuesday they caught me with a file
On a Wednesday I'm down on solitary
On a Thursday I start on a bread and water for awhile

I got stripes stripes around my shoulders...
I got stripes stripes around my shoulders...
