[C]I'm not in your town to stay

Said a lady old and grey
To [G7]the warden of the penitent[C]iary

I'm not in your town to stay

And I'll soon be on my way
I'm [G7]just here to get my baby out of [C]jail
Oh [F]warden I'm [G7]just here to get my baby out of [C]jail


I tried to raise my baby right

I have prayed both day and night
That he [G7]wouldn't follow the footsteps of his [C]dad  

I have searched both far and wide

And I feared that he had died
But at [G7]last I found my baby here in [C]jail
Oh [F]warden at [G7]last I found my baby here in [C]jail


It was just five years today

When his daddy passed away
He was [G7]found beneath the snow so cold and [C]white

Twas then I vowed to take his ring

And his gold watch and his chain
Then the [G7]county laid his daddy in the [C]grave
Yes [F]warden the [G7]county laid his daddy in the [C]grave


I will pawn you his watch

I will pawn you his chain
I will [G7]pawn you my diamond wedding [C]ring

I will wash all your clothes

I will scrub all your floors
If that [G7]will get my baby out of [C]jail
Yes [F]Warden if [G7]that will get my baby out of [C]jail


Then I heard the warden say

To the lady old and grey
I'll go [G7]bring your darling baby to your [C]side

Two iron gates swang wide apart

She held her darling to her heart
She [G7]kissed her baby boy and then she [C]died
But [F]smiling she [G7]kissed her baby boy and then she [C]died


I'm not in your town to stay

Said a lady old and grey
I'm [G7]just here to get my baby out of [C]jail
Yes [F]warden I'm [G7]just here to get my baby out of [C]jail


I'm not in your town to stay

Said a lady old and grey
To the warden of the penitentiary

I'm not in your town to stay

And I'll soon be on my way
I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
Oh warden I'm just here to get my baby out of jail

I tried to raise my baby right

I have prayed both day and night
That he wouldn't follow the footsteps of his dad

I have searched both far and wide

And I feared that he had died
But at last I found my baby here in jail
Oh warden at last I found my baby here in jail

It was just five years today

When his daddy passed away
He was found beneath the snow so cold and white

Twas then I vowed to take his ring

And his gold watch and his chain
Then the county laid his daddy in the grave
Yes warden the county laid his daddy in the grave

I will pawn you his watch

I will pawn you his chain
I will pawn you my diamond wedding ring

I will wash all your clothes

I will scrub all your floors
If that will get my baby out of jail
Yes Warden if that will get my baby out of jail

Then I heard the warden say

To the lady old and grey
I'll go bring your darling baby to your side

Two iron gates swang wide apart

She held her darling to her heart
She kissed her baby boy and then she died
But smiling she kissed her baby boy and then she died

I'm not in your town to stay

Said a lady old and grey
I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
Yes warden I'm just here to get my baby out of jail
