"Jailcell Blues" as written by Billy Bragg and Woody Guthrie....
Mailman walkin' by my cell
Mailman walkin' by my cell
It's when you don't bring me no news
That's the time when I sing my jailcell blues
That's the time when I sing my jailcell blues

When you walk your mailpouch
When you walk your mailpouch
By me with not one word from you
That's the time that I'll weep my jailcell blues
That's the time that I'll weep my jailcell blues

Little leather bag goes by me
Little leather bag goes by me
Not one little peep from you
Only time I cry my jailcell blues
Only time I cry my jailcell blues
