"I'm Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail"


A"I'm not in your town to stay,"
Asaid a lady old and gray
E Ato the warden of the penitentiary
A"I'm not in your town to stay
AAnd I'll soon be on my way
E AI'm just here to get my baby out of jail
D E AOh warden, I'm just here to get my baby out of jail"
A"I tried to raise my baby right
AI have prayed both day and night
E AThat he wouldn't follow footsteps of his dad
AI have searched both far and wide
AAnd I feared that he had died
E ABut at last I've found my baby here in jail
D E AOh warden, at last I've found my baby here in jail"
A
A"It was just five years today
AWhen his daddy passed away
E AHe was found beneath the snow so cold and white
AT’was then I bowed to take his ring
AAnd his gold watch and his chain
E AThen the county laid his daddy in the grave
D E AYes warden, the county laid his daddy in the grave"
A"I will pawn you his watch
AI will pawn you his chain
E AI will pawn you my diamond wedding ring
AI will wash all your clothes
AI will scrub all your floors
E AIf that will get my baby out of jail
D E AYes warden, if that will get my baby out of jail"
AThen I heard the warden say
Ato the lady old and gray:
E A"I'll go bring your darling baby to your side"
ATwo iron gates swung wide apart
A She held her darling to her heart
E AShe kissed her baby boy and then she died
D E ABut smiling, she kissed her baby boy and then she died
A E A A E A D E A
A"I'm not in your town to stay,"
Asaid a lady old and gray
E A"I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
D E AYes warden, I'm just here to get my baby out of jail"
