I opened the gates up.
Hey, Screw... Did you miss me?
Jimmy, I see that you found a new friend
Warden, come down here and kiss me hello
Cuz I'm back home in Huntsville again.

This suit that I'm wearin' cost $200
But I got it free with a $3 knife.
I got tailor-made shirts with them long pointed collars
And all it's gonna cost is ten years of my life.
So open the gates up
Hey, Screw... Did you miss me?
Jimmy, I see that you found a new friend
Warden, come down here and kiss me hello
Cuz I'm back home in Huntsville again.

I been rousted and turned out at three in the mornin'.
I been roughed up and shook down and stood on my ear.
I tried to find work, but they called me a jailbird,
So I went for the funnel, and I wound up down here.
So open the gates up
Hey, Screw... Did you miss me?
Jimmy, I see that you found a new friend
Warden, come down here and kiss me hello
Cuz I'm back home in Huntsville again.

I found me a woman as warm as the sunshine.
It took her a year to slip out of her dress.
She talked about havin' a little rose-covered cottage
But roses cost money and you know the rest.
So I went for the funnel, and I wound up down here.
So open the gates up
Hey, Screw... Did you miss me?
Jimmy, I see that you found a new friend
Warden, come down here and kiss me hello
Cuz I'm back home in Huntsville again.

Yes, I'm back home in Huntsville again.
