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
