Kingston Trio – Allentown Jail lyrics

Irving Gordon

They locked up her darlin' in Allentown jail, oh, oh, oh,
And no one has come to put up his bail, oh, oh, oh.
They say at the courthouse, he'll never go free, never go free,
'Cause he stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to give, to give to she.
Somewhere in Allentown jail, her heart waits in Allentown jail.

Oh, well, she'll dance for you, mister, she'll sing you a song, oh, oh, oh,
But more than that, mister, would surely be wrong, oh, oh, oh.
But more than that, mister, would surely be wrong for can't you see?
Her love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to give, to give to she.

You'll find none like him though you search the world 'round, oh, oh, oh,
And that's why you'll need the best lawyer in town, oh, oh, oh.
You must find a lawyer, the best one in town for can't you see?
Her love stole a diamond, a beautiful diamond to prove his love to she.
Somewhere in Allentown jail, her heart waits in Allentown jail.
Yeah, somewhere in Allentown jail. Somewhere in Allentown jail. Somewhere in Allentown jail.
