SITTIN' IN THE JAIL HOUSE
(Music & Lyrics by Robert Ross)

Sittin' in the jail house
Hoping there'll be no break of day
Prison warden do I get that pardon
I'm betting my life for a stay
I see through your bars the hangman and his guards
The preacher man all coming my way
  
Trouble started when a woman
Began making eyes at me
Round sexy hips silky hair and ruby lips
And she was wild and she was bad
All in a flash I was in a clash
Another man died by my hand

Hey bitty ya ya hey bitty ya ya day
Hey bitty ya ya hey bitty ya ya day
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Sittin' in the jail house
Hoping there'll be no break of day
Prison warden do I get that pardon
I'm betting my life for a stay
I see in your eyes it comes as no surprise
No mercy I will hang today

Hey bitty ya ya hey bitty ya ya day
Hey bitty ya ya hey bitty ya ya day
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
