[G]Doo do do doo do do doo do oooh wooo

One time I spent a [C]week inside a [G]little county jail
And I don't guess [C]I'll ever live it [G]down
I was sitting at a [C]red light when these [G]two men came and got me
And [C]said that I was speeding through their [D7]town   

[G]Well they said tomorrow [C]morning you can [G]see the judge then go
They let me call one [C]person on the [G]phone
I thought I'd be [C]there overnight so I [G]just called my boss
To [C]tell him I'd be off but not for [D7]long   

[G]They motioned me in[C]side a cell with [G]seven other guys
And one little barred up [C]window in the [G]rear
My cell mate said if [C]they had let me [G]bring some money in
We [C]ought to send the jailer for some [D7]beer   

[G]Well I had to pay him double [C]cause he was the [G]man in charge
And the jailer's job was [C]not the best in [G]town
Later on his wife [C]brought hot baloney [G]eggs and gravy
The [C]first day I was there I turned it [D7]down   

[G]Next morning they just let us [C]sleep but I was up [G]real early
Wondering when [C]I'd get my re[G]lease
Later on we got [C]more hot baloney [G]eggs n' gravy
By [C]now I wasn't quite so hard to [D7]please

[G]Two days later when I [C]thought that I had [G]been forgotten
The sheriff came in [C]chewing on a [G]straw
He said where is the [C]guy who thinks that this is [G]Indianapolis
I'd [C]like to talk to him about the [D7]law   

[G]Well I told him who I [C]was and told him I was [G]working steady
And I [C]really should be getting on my [G]way  
That part about me [C]being who I was [G]did not impress him
He [C]said the judge would be here any [D7]day   

[G]The jailer had a wife and [C]let me tell ya she was [G]awful
But she brought that hot [C]baloney every [G]day  
And after seven [C]days she got to [G]looking so much better
I [C]asked her if she'd like to run [D7]away   

[G]Next morning that ole [C]judge took every [G]nickel that I had
And he said son let this [C]teach you not to [G]race
The jailer's wife was [C]smiling from the [G]window as I left
In [C]thirty minutes I was outta [D7]state

[G]Doo do do doo do do doo do doo dooo


Doo do do doo do do doo do oooh wooo
