On a (D D) Monday, I was (A A)arrested.
On a Tuesday, they locked me in the (D D) jail.
On a Wednesday, my trial was (A A)attested.
On a Thursday they said guilty and the judge's gavel (D D)fell.

I got stripes, stripes around my (A A) shoulders.
I got chains,chains around my (D D) feet.
I got stripes, stripes around my (A A) shoulders,
and them chains them chains are about to drag me (D D)down.

On a Monday, I got my stripy britches,
On a Tuesday, got my ball and chain.
On a Wednesday, I'm workin diggin' ditches,
On a Thursday, Lord I'd begged them not to knock me down again


On a Monday, my mama come 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.
