Down in the Alabama jailhouse
As lonesome as I can be
With nothing but the blues all around me
To keep me company
Time on my hands and I'm a-waitin'
I'm walkin' up and down the floor
But if I ever get out of this Alabama jail
Well, I'm never comin' back no more
'Cause it started in the drinkin' and gamblin'
I knew at the time it was wrong
But I thought I could win a lot of money
Have a lot of wine, women and song
But I lost all my money
Went out on a drinkin' spree
Somebody shot down that gamblin' man
