Penitentiary Blues - Texas Alexander
Lonnie Johnson, accompanist, DGDGBE tuning


SPOKEN: Mama, she told me to stay at home and I wouldn't. She told me to stay at home and I couldn't.
But now, Mama, Bud Russell has got me and I cannot help myself. Lord have mercy.

Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmm
Mmmmmmm, oooh, mmmmm
Mmmmmm

SPOKEN: If I had-a listened, Mama, when you was tellin' me these things, I wouldn't have to worry with these old rusted chains

SUNG: I wonder what's the matter with poor Annie Lee?
Lord, the Captain whupped here and she ain't been seen
Mmmmm, mmmmmmm
Lord, the Captain whupped her and she ain't been seen

Oh, if it hadn't've been for the red mule's head
Lord, the Captain'd killed ol' Annie dead
Mmmmmm, mmmmmmmm
Lord, the Captain killed ol' Annie dead

If you get buggy want to see Red River red
Lord, Bud Russell will take you and you won't be dead
Mmmmm, mmmmmm
Lord, Bud Russell will take you and you won't be dead

Got my kitchen, got my kitchen door
That's where they laid the poor boy low on
Mmmmm, mmmmmm

Out in the rain, out in the cold
When your Captain call you, you have to go
Mmmmm, mmmmmmm
Boys, when the Captain call you, you have to go
