Nice little Blues song

Written, Produced, played and Recorded by Steve White

A man is wrongfully imprisoned and makes a break for it.
Penitentiary Blues

I’m lying here all night, sitting here all day
Look through my bars, up at the stars. I’ve got to get away
Got the Penitentiary Blues, nothing left to lose
Gotta find me my old lady I’m puttin on my runnin shoes

Visiting hours are at five, glad to be alive
I have a plan, run from the man and break out of this dive
Got the Penitentiary Blues, nothing left to lose
Gotta find me my old lady, I’m puttin on my runnin shoes.

The dogs are at my heels, gotta shake em off my tail
I’ve worked too hard and run too far, to end up back in jail
Got the Penitentiary Blues, nothing left to lose
Gotta find me my old lady, for I’m on the six o clock news.

I’m sittin in my kitchen, suckin down a beer, washin down the taste of death and how I spent that year.
Had the Penitentiary Blues, nothing left to lose
I found me my old lady, I’m puttin away my runnin shoes.
I found me my old lady, I’m puttin away my runnin shoes.
Fade out……
Knew I was innocent, threw me in jail
I had no trial, got no bail…..
