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

I'm not in your town to stay said a lady old and gray
To the warden of the penitentary
I'm not in your town to stay and I'll soon be on my way
I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
(Yes warden)
You know I want my baby out of jail

I've tried to raise my baby rightI I have prayed both day and night
That he wouldn't follow the footsteps of his Dad
I have searched both far and wide and I feared that he had died
But at last I found my baby here in jail
(Yes warden)
You know it's good to find my baby here in jail

It was five years today when my husband passed away
He was found beneath the snow so cold and white
T'was then I vowed to take his ring, his gold watch and his chain
But the county laid my husband in the grave
