"I'm Just Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail" as written by and Karl Davis....
"I'm not in your town to stay"
Said a lady old and gray
I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
Yes, warden, I'm just here to get my baby out of jail

I will wash all your clothes
I will scrub all your floors
If that will get my baby out of jail
Yes, warden, if that will get my baby out of jail

I will pawn you my watch
I will pawn you my chain
I will pawn you my gold wedding ring
Yes, warden, I'm just here to get my baby out of jail

Two iron gates swang wide apart
She held her darlin' to her heart
She kissed her baby boy and then she died
Yes, warden, in the arms of her dear boy there she died
