Doing My Time

Song Author Jimmie Skinner Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]On this old rock pile with a ball and chain

They call me by a number not a name
Lord Lord [F]gotta do my time I gotta do my [C]time
With an aching [G7]heart on that gal of [C]mine


You can hear my hammer you can hear my song

Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long
Lord Lord [F]gotta do my time gotta do my [C]time
With an aching [G7]heart on that gal of [C]mine


When that old judge looked down at me

Said I'll put you in the penitentiary
Lord Lord [F]gotta do my time gotta do my [C]time
With an aching [G7]heart on that gal of [C]mine


Well now it won't be long just a few more days

They'll let me out of here I'm gonna stay
Lord Lord [F]with that gal of mine with that gal of [C]mine
She's waited for [G7]me while I've done my [C]time


On this old rock pile with a ball and chain

They call me by a number not a name
Lord Lord gotta do my time I gotta do my time
With an aching heart on that gal of mine

You can hear my hammer you can hear my song

Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long
Lord Lord gotta do my time gotta do my time
With an aching heart on that gal of mine

When that old judge looked down at me

Said I'll put you in the penitentiary
Lord Lord gotta do my time gotta do my time
With an aching heart on that gal of mine

Well now it won't be long just a few more days

They'll let me out of here I'm gonna stay
Lord Lord with that gal of mine with that gal of mine
She's waited for me while I've done my time
