Doing My Time Recorded by Johnny Cash written by Jimmie Skinner
C On this old rock pile with a ball and chain
They call me by a number not a name F C Lord Lord gotta do my time I gotta do my time G7 C With an aching heart on that gal of mine
You can hear my hammer you can hear my song
Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long F C Lord Lord gotta do my time gotta do my time G7 C With an aching heart on that gal of mine
When that old judge looked down at me
Said I'll put you in the penitentiary F C Lord Lord gotta do my time gotta do my time G7 C With an aching heart on that gal of mine
Well now it won't be long just a few more days
They'll let me out of here I'm gonna stay F C Lord Lord with that gal of mine with that gal of mine G7 C She's waited for me while I've done my time
