On this rock pile, with my ball and chain
They call me by a number not a name Lord, Lord

Gotta do my time, I gotta do my time
With an aching heart, on that gal of mine

You can here my hammer, you can hear my saw
Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long Lord, Lord

Gotta do my time, I gotta do my time
With an aching heart, on that gal of mine

When that old judge looked down at me
Said I put you in that penitentiary Lord, Lord

Gotta do my time, I gotta do my time
With an aching heart, on that gal of mine

Well now it won't be long, just a few more days
They'll let me out of here I'm gonna stay Lord, Lord

With that gal of mine, with that gal of mine
She's a waited for me while I've done my time
