Ry Cooder – Viola Lee Blues lyrics

The judge decreed it, clerk he wrote it
I say he wrote it down indeed
The judge decreed it, clerk he wrote it down
Give you this jail sentence you must be Nashville bound

Some got six month, some got one solid
Some got one solid year indeed
Some got six month, some doing solid here
But me and my buddies all got lifetime here, play
