i got stripes (live) lyrics – johnny cash

on a monday i was arrested
(uh huh)
on a tuesday they locked me in the jail
(oh boy)
on a wednesday my trial was attested
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 down
