Dickey Lee – Tupelo County Jail lyrics

Why don't you write write write me a letter send that letter by mail
Send that letter in care of the Tupelo County jail
Why don't you send me the best of love dear there's no one to go my bail
Never seen a place so lonely as the Tupelo County jail
Send that letter full of kisses over these prison walls
Cause baby kisses on paper are better than no kisses at all
I hear the freight train pass my window callin' me to ride the rail
Ball and chain gonna keep me in the Tupelo County jail
[ steel ]
Send that letter full of kisses...
