I GOT STRIPES (Johnny Cash / Charlie Williams) Johnny Cash - 1959 Jimmy Dempsey (Instr.) - 1970 Frank Sheen - 1972 On a Monday I was arrested (Uh-huh) On a Tuesday they locked me in the jail (Poor 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 'bout to drag me down On a Monday got my striped britches (Uh-huh) On a Tuesday got my ball and chain (Poor boy) On a Wednesday I'm workin' diggin' ditches On a Thursday, Lord, I begged them not to knock me down again 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 'bout to drag me down On a Monday my mama come to see me (Uh-huh) On a Tuesday they caught me with a file (Poor boy) On a Wednesday I'm down on solitary On a Thursday I start on a bread and water for a while 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 'bout to drag me down (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2018)
