  • And I never worked before
    'Bout to blow my fuse
    Penitentiary blues

    They gave me clothes on Tuesday
    Like I ain't ever seen before
    The kind of rags my momma used
    To scrub our kitchen floor
    And funny square-toed shoes
    Penitentiary blues

    All that marijuana
    Selling cocaine
    Now they're taking blood tests
    From my heroin vein
    Oh baby
    Things I used to do now
    I was born to lose
    Penitentiary blues

    I miss my main street women
    I miss my monkey grady wine
    I miss the cats down on the corner
    We used to have a swingin' time
    Chalkin' up our cues
    Penitentiary blues

    All that marijuana
    Selling cocaine
    Now they're taking blood tests
    From my heroin vein
    Oh baby
    Things I used to do now
    I was born to lose
    Penitentiary blues
