I'm on My Way Blues

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 2 (1937-1938) (1993).

I was standing on the corner, and I was wringing my hands
I was standing on the corner, and I was wringing my hands
And up come a copper, and say he was a plain‑clothes man

He carried me to the station, and put me in a cell
He carried me to the station, and put me in a cell
He said you stay there partner, until about twelve

The judge he passed the sentence, the clerk he wrote it down
The judge he passed the sentence, the clerk he wrote it down
I know by that baby, I was prison bound

Bye bye bye baby, I see you some sweet day
Bye bye bye baby, I see you some sweet day
Yeah I was not a bad fellow, but the judge he sent me away

I'm going away baby, but I never will forget this day
I'm going away baby, but I never will forget this day
Yeah the Good Book do tell you, ooh that crime do not pay
