County Jail Blues

This song is by B.B. King and Eric Clapton and appears on the album Riding With the King (2000).

They picked me up, put me in the county jail
They picked me up, put me in the county jail
They wouldn't let my woman come and post my bail

Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time
Now I'm in prison, I've almost done my time
They gave me six months, I had to work out nine

I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout
I know my baby, she's gonna jump and shout
When the train comes in and I come walking out

Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs
Take these stripes from around me, chains from around my legs
The stripes don't hurt me; the chains could kill me dead
