Sittin' down here on a Parchment Farm, uh huh. (Repeat)
Sittin' down here on a Parchment Farm, I ain't never done nobody no harm.

Bet your life I'm going to jail, uh huh. (Repeat)
You can bet your life I'm going to jail, judge bought a Cadillac with my bail.

Loadin' that cotton in a hundred pound sack, uh huh. (Repeat)
Loadin' that cotton in a hundred pound sack, got a twelve gauge shot gun at my back.

I be in jail for the rest of my life, uh huh. (Repeat)
You know that I be in jail for the rest of my life, all I ever did was to shot my wife, uh huh.

Sittin' down here on a Parchment Farm, uh huh. Uh huh. I ain't never done nobody no harm.
Uh huh. Uh huh. Bet your life I'm going to jail.
Uh huh. Uh huh. Sittin' down here on a Parchment Farm.
