Ernest Tubb – Fort Worth Jail lyrics

Fort worth jail
(dick Reinhardt)
" © '46 Red River Songs, bmi "

Way down in Fort Worth jailhouse feeling kinda low
Nobody cares about me cause I ain't got no dough
No 5 so black and shiny took me off to jail
My good gal said so long baby cause I can't go your bail
Dream all days that I'll be goin' down that lonely road so long
Looking for my stockyard baby though I know she's done me wrong
All you ramblin' men take a warning don't go near that big cowtown
Never trust a stockyard baby cause she always lets you down
