INTRO

I just got out of the workhouse, only been out one day
I just got out of the workhouse, only been out one day
I'm out in the street, broke and hungry, haven't got no place to stay

I went to my friend house, and asked him for a meal
I went to my friend house, and asked him for a meal
He said, "You just got of the workhouse, partner, I know how you feel."

I went on down the street, with a hundred things on my mind
I went on down the street, with a hundred things on my mind
I was looking for the woman that caused me to do my time

SOLO

When I found that woman, she had a hundred dollars in her hand
When I found that woman, she had a hundred dollars in her hand
And I asked her for ten dollars, she said I was no more her man

Now I'm on my way up to the big house, people, and I don't even care
On my way back to the big house, people, I don't even care
I might get lifetime, then again, I might get the 'lectric chair
