DON VALLEY JAIL - STOMPIN' TOM CONNORS
Tabbed by Barry Miles

G    C

Verse:
          C       G       C
I left my love to seek my fortune
                   G      C
Though she told me not to go
                  G    C
I said goodbye to Nova Scotia
          G7       C
Travelled to Ontario
          G7       C
Travelled to Ontario

There I chose the wrong companions
And we tried to rob the mail
Now I'm in Toronto city
In the old Don Valley Jail
I'm in the old Don Valley Jail

Chorus:
       F
Little darlin, do a favor for me
C
Don't tell mom and dad

It would break their hearts to know
                              G7
Their only son has turned out bad

       C             
And if you should see my sisters
             F                C
Please don't tell them I'm in jail
        F                C
I still love you, little darlin'
        G7               C
I'll be waiting for your mail
        G7               C
I'll be waiting for your mail

F    C    G7   C

Verse:
Here among my few belongings
I have pictures of the sea
But the picture that I cherish
Is that one of you and me
It's that one of you and me

I'll be tryin for probation
There's a man who comes around
Keep your fingers crossed and pray
That I'll be Nova Scotia bound
I'll be Nova Scotia bound

Chorus

As I write, I think of someone
Who once said, it always seems
When they take your freedom from you
Then you'll know what freedom means
Yes, I know what freedom means

Now I hope you get my letter
In the Nova Scotia mail
But don't forget me in Toronto
In the old Don Valley jail,
I'm in the old Don Valley jail

Chorus

       G7                 C
In the ooooold Don Valley Jail
