I'm Just Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail recorded by the Everly Brothers written by Karl Davis and Harty Taylor
C I'm not in your town to stay Said a lady old and grey G7 C To the warden of the penitentiary I'm not in your town to stay And I'll soon be on my way G7 C I'm just here to get my baby out of jail F G7 C Oh warden I'm just here to get my baby out of jail I tried to raise my baby right I have prayed both day and night G7 C That he wouldn't follow the footsteps of his dad I have searched both far and wide And I feared that he had died G7 C But at last I found my baby here in jail F G7 C Oh warden at last I found my baby here in jail It was just five years today When his daddy passed away G7 C He was found beneath the snow so cold and white Twas then I vowed to take his ring And his gold watch and his chain G7 C Then the county laid his daddy in the grave F G7 C Yes warden the county laid his daddy in the grave I will pawn you his watch I will pawn you his chain G7 C I will pawn you my diamond wedding ring I will wash all your clothes I will scrub all your floors G7 C If that will get my baby out of jail F G7 C Yes Warden if that will get my baby out of jail Then I heard the warden say To the lady old and grey G7 C I'll go bring your darling baby to your side Two iron gates swang wide apart She held her darling to her heart G7 C She kissed her baby boy and then she died F G7 C But smiling she kissed her baby boy and then she died I'm not in your town to stay Said a lady old and grey G7 C I'm just here to get my baby out of jail F G7 C Yes warden I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
