A Week In A County Jail by Tom T Hall

Doo do do  doo do do doo do oooh wooo

                   C             G
One time I spent a week inside a little county jail
                  C                 G
And I don't guess I'll ever live it down
                   C                    G
I was sitting at a red light when these two men came and got me

    C                                      D7
And said that I was speeding through their town

G                       C               G
Well they said tomorrow morning you can see the judge then go

                     C             G
They let me call one person on the phone

                 C                    G
I thought I'd be there overnight so I just called my boss

   C                               D7
To tell him I'd be off but not for long

G                  C                G
They motioned me inside a cell with seven other guys

                         C             G
And one little barred up window in the rear

                     C               G
My cell mate said if they had let me bring some money in

   C                                 D7
We ought to send the jailer for some beer

G                            C                G
Well I had to pay him double cause he was the man in charge

                         C               G
And the jailer's job was not the best in town

                  C                   G
Later on his wife brought hot baloney eggs and gravy

    C                                 D7
The first day I was there I turned it down

G                             C                  G
Next morning they just let us sleep but I was up real early

               C            G
Wondering when I'd get my release

                C                G
Later on we got more hot baloney eggs n' gravy

   C                             D7
By now I wasn't quite so hard to please
G                     C                  G
Two days later when I thought that I had been forgotten

                    C            G
The sheriff came in chewing on a straw

                     C                           G
He said where is the guy who thinks that this is Indianapolis

    C                             D7
I'd like to talk to him about the law

G                     C                      G
Well I told him who I was and told him I was working steady

      C                              G
And I really should be getting on my way

                   C               G
That part about me being who I was did not impress him 

   C                                D7
He said the judge would be here any day 

G                         C                      G
The jailer had a wife and let me tell ya she was awful 

                         C             G
But she brought that hot baloney every day 

                C               G
And after seven days she got to looking so much better

  C                              D7
I asked her if she'd like to run away
G                     C                G
Next morning that ole judge took every nickel that I had

                         C                G
And he said son let this teach you not to race

                      C                G
The jailer's wife was smiling from the window as I left
   C                          D7
In thirty minutes I was outta state 

Doo do do  doo do do doo do doo dooo
