DIGGIN’ A HOLE by Jeff Prince Diggin’ a hole is a natural thing to do. Out in Odessa digging for Texas crude. Or up in the Klondike searching for buckets of gold. There’s plenty a good reason for a man to be diggin’ a hole. Diggin’ a…read more

About “A Year In Jail 122814 Jim”

Capo @ 2 in D (E) Dropped D tuning

D G Bb A
A year in jail can change man
You hang on to everything you can
Some things just bound to slip away
I’m stuck in a cell with I don’t know what
Can’t sleep a wink is all I got
One foot on the floor, ten cigarettes a day

The bang of the gate. The blink of the light
All locked up and safe at night
Singing in the choir and dreaming I’ll Fly Away
Breakfast is stale so I stay in bed
Thinkin’ about my mama and what she said
But my thots and mama are a thousand miles away

G D G Bb A
Can’t pull the shade. Can’t shut the door
Falling down the stairs from the seventh floor
I pump pig iron til I got no more
I’m so damn tired I can’t keep score

D
Weather? There’s no weather.
Time? I got plenty of time.
G D
Laying down tracks, trying to keep it all together
G Bb A
Soaking up the change…never dropping a dime

Some glad morning I will fly away, Some glad morning

A year in Jail or maybe two
Maybe three. What’s that to you?
I’m out of sight so I’ve been out of mind
But I’ll be headed home with brand new clothes
Shiny shoes and a cleaned up nose
Then I’ll take the first job I can find

Windows all so dirty and high
There’s nothing to look at so I don’t try
Cry and cry until my eyes are dry
And everything in here is a god damned lie…

A move to the farm with a custody bump.
A book I found at the prison dump
A thousand hens and a thousand eggs a day
A pint of blood for a piece of cake
A pat on the back for the belts I make…
No fence out here but I decide to stay

Weather? There’s no weather.
Time? I got plenty of time…

Agreed with Carey Wolff article “Ghost of John Murphy’s Voices” from: http://www.fwweekly.com/2014/01/29/killer-or-filler-22/

Also: hope that ghosts will not sell all gear and promptly *** :)
