Doin My Time

Capo 1st fret

E
On this old rock pile, with a ball and chain,

They call me by a number, not a name.
A                                               E
Lord, Lord, gotta do my time. I gotta do my time,
B7                          E
with an achin’ heart on that gal of mine.


E
You can hear my hammer, you can hear my saw.

Gonna sing it like John Henry all day long.
A                                               E
Lord, Lord, gotta do my time. I gotta do my time,
B7                          E
with an achin’ heart on that gal of mine.


Guitar solo:
|     E     |     E     |     E     |     E     |
|    A     |     A     |     A     |     A    |
|     E     |     E     |     E     |     E     |
|    B7    |    B7   |    B7    |    B7    |
|     E     |     E     |


E
When that old judge looked down at me,

said, “I’ll put you in the penitentiary.”
A                                               E
Lord, Lord, gotta do my time. I gotta do my time,
B7                          E
with an achin’ heart on that gal of mine.


Guitar solo:
|     E     |     E     |     E     |     E     |
|    A     |     A     |     A     |     A    |
|     E     |     E     |     E     |     E     |
|    B7    |    B7   |    B7    |    B7    |
|     E     |     E     |


E
Well, now it won’t be long, just a few more days.

They’ll let me out of here.
A                                                        E
I’m gonna stay, Lord, Lord, with that gal of mine. With that gal of mine.
B7                                E
She’s waited for me while I’ve done my time.
