I Got Stripes Lyrics - Johnny Cash



Review The Song (0)


On A Monday I was arrested
On A Tuesday they locked me in the jail
On A Wednesday my trial was attested
On A Thursday they said guilty and the judge's gavel fell
I got stripes, stripes around my shoulders
I got chains, chains around my feet
I got stripes, stripes around my shoulders
And them chains, them chains, they're 'bout to drag me down

On a Monday I got my striped britches
On a Tuesday got my ball and chain
On a Wednesday I'm working digging ditches
On a Thursday Lord I begged 'em not to knock me down again

On A Monday my momma came to see me
On A Tuesday they caught me with a file
On A Wednesday I'm down in solitary
On A Thursday Lord I start on bread and water for a while

I Got Stripes --- Stripes Around My Shoulders
I Got Chains --- Chains Around My Feet
I Got Stripes --- Stripes Around My Shoulders
And Them Chains --- Them Chains They're About To Drag Me down

I Got Stripes --- Stripes Around My Shoulders
I Got Chains --- Chains Around My Feet
I Got Stripes --- Stripes Around My Shoulders
And Them Chains --- Them Chains They're About To Drag Me Down
