I Got Stripes Lyrics

On a Monday I was are-rested (uh huh)
On a Tuesday they locked me in the jail (oh boy)
On a Wednesday my trial was at-tested
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 about to drag me down

On a Monday my momma come to see me
On a Tuesday they caught me with a file
On a Wednesday I'm down in solitary
On a Thursday 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
