Doin' My Time Lyrics

Lyrics:

(Skinner)
Sony/ATV Acuff Rose Music (BMI)


On this old pile with a ball and chain
They call be by a number not a name, lord, lord
Gotta do my time, gotta do my time
With an aching heart and worried mind

When that old judge looked down and smile
He said I'll put you on that good road for a while, lord
Gotta do my time, gotta do my time
With an aching heart and a worried mind

You can hear my hammer you can hear my song
I'll swing it like john henly all day long, lord, lord
Gotta do my time, gotta do my time
With an aching heart and a worried mind

It won't be long just few more days
I'll settle down and quit my rowdy ways, lord, lord
With that gal of mine, with that gal of mine
She'll be waiting for me when I've done my time
