Jailcell Blues
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Billy Bragg

Mailman walkin by my cell
Mailman walkin by my cell
It’s when you don’t bring me no news
That’s the time when I sing my jailcell blues
That’s the time when I sing, that’s the time when I sing my jailcell blues.

When you walk y’r mailpouch
When you walk y’r mailpouch
By me with not one word fr’m you
That’s the time that I’ll weep my jailcell blues
That’s the time that I’ll weep my jailcell blues.

Little leather bag goes by me
Little leather bag goes by me
Not one little peep from you
Only time I cry my jailcell blues
Only time I cry my jailcell blues.
