Orleans Parish Prison Lyrics

(Dick Feller)
© '73 Cyberphonic Publishing, BMI

Well have you seen my dark haired girl
She was sellin' her love to a hungry world
They got her clothes and the money she took
And they wrote her name in the prison book
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my dark haired girl
She's tired and cold and you got the gold she took from a hungry world
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my dark haired girl
[ fiddle ]
Well have you seen my green eyed son
He shot a man down with a sort of gun
And they found him down by the ponchartrain
Where they cuffed his hands with a big iron chain
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my green eyed son
I heard him say as they led him away sorry for what he's done
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my green eyed son
[ fiddle ]
Well have you missed my brother man
He took a little money with a gun in his hand
Now the kids are hungry and the wife ain't well
And their daddy's locked up in the prison cell
Oh Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my brother man
I know it's sad but he ain't bad he's doin' the best he can
Orleans Parish Prison won't you free my brother man
